Thirds Tremolo Fingering Chart for Saxophone

First Octave: D5 to D6

This fingering chart includes tremolo fingerings, which are fingerings designed for rapid alternation between two notes. This particular chart covers tremolos in which the two notes are spaced at intervals of minor thirds (3 semitones) and major thirds (4 semitones) apart. Many of these fingerings can also be used as alternate fingerings for some fast passages. Keys to be trilled are indicated in red. When more than one key is to be trilled, the keys should be simultaneously pressed and simultaneously released, unless the description says to alternate pressing and releasing the keys. These fingerings are the same on all sizes of saxophone (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, and bass) unless specified otherwise.
