 Sax Fingerings for the Clarinetist?
Author: A1tissimo 
Date:   2007-06-04 21:30

I've played clarinet for a while, and I've been itching to try saxophone (mostly because I'm getting sick of playing the piano in jazz band). I've heard a lot of different things about sax fingerings - that they're pretty close (octave key instead of register key), that they're impossible ("You're better off trying to play trumpet!" - as if!), and everything in between.

Anyone want to offer their expert knowledge and clear it up once and for all?
