How to play High G on Sax

Friday, April 15, 2016 

 

High G is an important note on sax.  Apart from the fact it sounds REALLY cool, it's also the "gateway note" to the Altissimo range, or the 4th octave on the sax.

 

In this quick lesson, you will learn some techniques to help you get that note out, and make it comfortable.

 

Don't forget to download the finger chart for High G below the video.

 

Enjoy!

About the blog:

I created this blog to share my experience touring and performing over the last 30 years all over the world with big bands, jazz ensembles, symphony orchestras and touring shows. I've pretty much worked in every part of the music business from soloist to band leader, musical director, studio musician and even managing an orchestra in London's west end. I love talking about saxophone and helping others to reach their saxophone goals. Most importantly though, I want to hear about your progress, challenges and victories on the road to learning sax.
