After the lush sounds of the rest of the sax those two notes came as an awful shock to me as well. When i mentioned them to my teacher he just laughed and told me that I had discovered the two worst notes on the instrument and that I would get used to them. That's what happened. You will get used to them too.

Thanks very much beck. I just well and truly love the instrument. If i could play all day i would. My wife bought me my sax as i was borrowing one but now i have my own its my prized possession.

These things take time and of course practice of good technique. You might want to get hold of a book called Top Tones for the Saxophone. It's pretty cheap and very helpful.
