Does anyone have a transposing chart. I have the basics but want to know what a bottom c on a guitar is on an alto sax. If anyone can point me in the direction of how it works or the best way of learning it tht would be cool.
If you learn what the concert pitch notes are, one at a time if need be, it makes things a lot easier. At present you know C on alto is Eb and A on alto is C. If you remember D is F and G is Bb, all you have to do is join the dots, so to speak.
Another way to remember the transposition is that the saxophone note/fingering is the relative minor of the concert pitch. C is A etc.
For key change, the alto saxophone starts with 3b's so you need to add 3#'s. C becomes A.
Its called tab......shows the note timings but uses fret/string positions. There is also a classical guitar notation that uses regular notation with finger numbers to explain passages that are not obvious
