Hi guys its been a while since I was on last
Im still learning and playing
My question is about a popular sax song ......Careless whisper....classic.
Anyway I play the tenor and I play along to "Art in sound" (sax player on youtube) as a backing track and I try to duet with him on youtube through my tablet and amp.
Obviously hes playing his alto....... so im playing in b flat on my tenor
Something doesn't sound right though I think im playing in the right key but it doesn't sound right .
can anyone check this out and get back to me?

regards
Allansto

Allan, IF this is in the original key Dmin. You should be in Emin on tenor. If that's wrong someone will come along and let us both know.

Sounds like a D minor chord at the end to me, FWIW.

I'm getting B minor on the alto so D minor concert and E minor on the tenor. I'm just going to burn the reed, sterilise the mouthpiece and have a lie down now. And if any one lets on I've been playing George Michael.................

Your original post says you're playing it in Bb. If thats tenor or concert I don't think it will work. It sounds like G /Em for the tenor. F/Dm concert.
