I use an app called AudioStretch. I’ve used it for practicing keyboards for a while, but new to tenor. You can change key and tempo of recoded music.Thanks nigeld i didnt think i was particularly daft but this transpositioning thing may be proving otherwise...lol
Yes - I see Nigeld has replied in detail.Hi thanks tenor viol; it's been a while and thanks to this thread i managed to complete 2 outta 3 but want to do hand bags and glad rags. I hope you dont mind me asking i found the music it has 2 flats. Does this mean that it is in key of Bb major and for tenor sax i need it in c major. thanks Eddie
I don't think in concert. I think in terms of what's written in front of me. I know if I'm in or out of tune. I play various concert pitch instruments, such as cello and piano, and I have no problems playing transposing instruments such as sax, whether Bb or Eb. I see a G in cello music, I play G. I see a G in sax music, I finger a G - the fact that in concert terms the resulting sound is not a G but something else just doesn't bother me.Since this keeps coming up, allow me to quote Dave Sanborn (again): "I think in concert."
There are probably disadvantages to this, but it's how I came to the instrument, from guitar,bass, piano, violin, mandolin. The biggest problem is if you take lessons, the teacher might tell you to play a 'G' and on my alto that plays a Bb. I know that note as Bb and if a guitar or piano player wants to play in A, I don't transpose, because... Yes, I think in concert.
