Alternate Saxophone Fingerings for Timbre Variation

I used Bret Pimentel's woodwind fingering diagram app to make some timbre variation fingering diagrams. The fingering were taken from Ronald L. Caravan's Preliminary Exercises & Etudes In Contemporary Techniques for Saxophone book. These fingering change key venting to subtly change the timbre of the note, without drastically changing the pitch of the note. Very cool indeed.

Nice! This is just the kind of thing I was hoping people would do with the Fingering diagram builder.
