I'm not sure I'm posting this in the right category, but I'm hoping someone out there with more brains than me can assist!
I have a sax book with the song Buffalo Soldier in (50+ Easy Popular Solos for Sax). I play the Alto sax, my mum plays the clarinet and my brother the guitar. The music I have has two lots of chords, one for Eb instruments and one for Bb instruments. I can work out how to work out using the circle of fifths what key the clarinet plays in - if I play the piece in C, and the clarinet would play it in F major. My notes start with E, the clarinet to play in unison would play an A.
If the first chord for a Eb sax is Eb, and for a Bb sax is Bb, what would the guitar play? I'm guessing the chords are for a keyboard, but surely there must be an easy(ish) way to work out the chords for a guitar (which I assume is in C)? I'm sort of thinking that the first chord would be a G#, but somehow I don't think the guitar would play that.
It may turn out that I need to scrap the whole thing and start from scratch! If so, please let me know - I can take it (I think).
