Not an easy one at all. First fingering (variation one: Left hand High F key ~ pointer finger, Octave, Right hand side B flat, Low F), (variation two: same as one except add Low E and E flat), (variation three: Left hand B, Octave, Left hand G, side B flat and low F). Here's the dissappointing part. Even if you finger these properly there's no immediate guarantee that the note will sound properly (it takes lots of practice and patience to find the key combo that plays in tune with your other ranges, without changing your embouchure). Do not force it, changing the embouchure to get a note is always a mistake. Get a tuner or sit by an in tune string instrument. Your overtones that sound will trigger a sympathetic tone from pianos or guitars. Above all else pay close attention to the way octave and other key relationships sound. If it doesn't sound like an octave it probably isn't. Developing your ear to hear these relationships is much more valuable than being able to play a cool high note. Get a book. The one I have is called "Saxophone: Beginning studies in the Altissimo Register" by Rosemary Lang. Unfortunately, there's no short cuts for this one.

easy to play u just have to know the fingering. its 1st 2nd & 3rd bottons where the left hand is suppose to be. and use the octive key. just use the nomal fingering for the low g and then just press the octive key. by the way the octive key is is the right above the right tumb
