Re: Keys for Transposing Instruments
As someone that started on and played primarily alto sax, I prefer to play in sharps over flats. I have always said I would rather play in 7 sharps than 5 flats. We have always seen more sharps. Remember that in Bb we play in G. We don't see a flat until Ab. So to your specific, I'd rather play 6 sharps than 6 flats.
