So I am a brass player.....I am wondering about sax alternate fingerings and when to use them. I am trying to introduce mini scales to get them used to seeing the notes. (I do different modes like easy half notes, medium with quarter notes, and Pro Mode with eighth notes.) Anyway, I want to introduce Mini Concert F Scale for saxes. So for the f# is it the normal one and do you use the alternate f# for ONLY Chromatic? Like how can you tell when to use it? Is it just when it makes sense for your fingers?
Thanks in Advance
