Box 11021, Indianapolis, Indiana 46201 International Copyright Secured Revised edition and third printing — July, 1988. DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF MY GOOD FRIEND, THE LATE WILLIAM J. SCHUMACHER. ADIT A LSAT ALI ABUT ALINE ALIS TALI OO Fingerings The fingerings for the altissimo register are not standardized and uniform with all saxophones as are the fingerings for the normal range. Some flexibility must be allowed, since effective- ness of the altissimo register fingerings will vary somewhat with instrument makes, mouthpiece dimensions and reed strengths. Also different fingerings are required for each member of the saxophone family. This book will illustrate fingerings for the alto and tenor saxophones only, since altissimo register playing is rarely encountered on the others. If another fingering not shown produces better results on your instrument -- use it! Blank pages are provided at the back of the book for your use in marking additional fingerings. » oe.
