Answer To play a scale of Bb on an alto saxophone, you must first know whether the Bb is the "concert pitch" (playing the scale with a band or orchestra), or whether yo…u want to play the Bb scale of your solo instrument. Normally, the Bb scale includes the notes: Bb-C-D-Eb-F-G-A-Bb, and those are the notes you would typically play to perform the Bb scale on your instrument. However, since the Alto Saxophone is pitched in Eb, you need to "transpose" these notes in order to play a Bb scale in concert pitch with other musicians. On the Alto Saxophone, transposition yields the G scale, or the notes: G-A-B-C-D-E-F#-G.
For an E on the alto saxophone, you need to have your first, second, and third fingers down on your left hand, and your first and second fingers down on your right hand.… If you want low E, leave it like this, if you want high E, then add the octave key.
The saxophone is a fairly easy instrument to play, most people learn to play it in a year or so. Remember, to be a good instrumentalist you have to practice. *edit* I apolog…ise to however wrote the previous answer, but you're a little idiotic. The saying is that the saxophone is the easiest to learn and the hardest to master. Words of wisdom from the man above me :) I have been playing the sax for 6 years now, its tricky to get usd to, you have 26 keys, but don't let that number frighten you! Practice, Practice Practice and you will know how to play every note on that sax. If your just starting out, I recommend going to your local music shop, and talking with the clerk about some suggestions on books for beginners. Practice a little everyday, and the sax will seem like a cakewalk in no time.

If you are holding the saxophone correctly, press the keys underneath your index, middle, and ring finger on you left hand and your index finger on your right hand. Use …the octave key if you need it.
The same thing happened to me just check the register key pad on the neck. If the pad isn't there buy a new one. It could also be your embounture, loosen your lips and ligatur…e.
