How to use the fingering table

Postby Filip » Thu 18 Jun 2015, 10:15

I've designed the fingering table in iPlaySax in a way which you've probably haven't seen before.
Usually if you have a book for studying the saxophone, or some teaching method, there will be a drawing (or 2) of the saxophone. And all the keys will have a number. Then there is a table with all the possible notes, C C#, D, etc. Every note will have some of the numbers from the drawing assigned to it. In that way you can look up which keys to press.

I usually find that very unpractical, and not very intuitive.
Therefore I just made some drawings showing you immediately which keys to press. And the note is played as well!
So you can check if it sounds the same as the note your playing.
Remember, you can change the sound to that of an tenor or alto. Those are not the same!
If you play the bariton, use the alto setting. It will sound 'the same', but an octave lower.
For the soprano, use the tenor setting. The tenor will sound 'the same', but an octave lower.
