    You have the right buttons. I'll give you the two fingerings that I use on alto. Fist fingering is: High F key and A key. Second fingering is: B key, G key, and F key. Octave key remains open throughout the harmonic range. Hope this helps you :)

      I use the high F, A, and side B flat keys. This works very well for me. I've tried the other fingerings and this one seems to give the brightest tone.

        This chart will give several fingerings, and you can figure out what works best for you. www.wfg.woodwind.org/sax/sax_alt_4.html

      I forgot to say side Bb . I meant high F key, A key and side Bb. As Sax Alert said, that is the best one. Sorry for the error :(
