      On the sax there is a key that I have yet to find a use for and have tried any number of combinations to get a good sound out of.
      It is a key just above the B key on the left hand, it does not have a pearl, its metal. Can you enlighten me as to the use and any combinations for that key? I have ignored the key thus far but last night I lost sleep over it!


        That key is for the high F. Play it with the C and octave key and it gives you the alternate high F note…
        the other way to finger a high F is with the side palm keys.

        When we play that F with the note in question along with the C it’s called the high F forked fingering because I guess the index and middle finger end up in this position of a fork.

          After You Mastered The Forked f , When Playing The Forked F If You Then Add Your 3Rd Finger Left Hand And Press The G Key You’ll Get An E! Handy Sometimes For Certain Solos 😉
