Wikifonia is a great site of lead sheets.

Now with a new resource: You can select your version in C, Bb, Eb.
That's a useful tool for trumpets, saxes, clarinets...

You may download and print songs in your favorite key.
That's good for horns, vocalists, and lots of musicians.

I'm inviting my friends to see some tunes published by me in Wikifonia.
Click on "play" in Media box to hear the song.

Good luck and enjoy that stuff.

Is there a site to find the name of a tune if you only know the melody?

How do you transpose a tune UP a sixth for alto sax? When I transpose to the alto key it comes out an octave too low.

You must transpose up 9 halftones for your sax, and here in Wikifonia you have only 6 up and 6 down.

So you may select -3 to get the right key, but you must play one octave upper than written.

I play alto sax and transpose all the time. It's too hard to transpose up a sixth! The trick is to read down a minor third and then automatically think up an octave - much easier, while the other is virtually impossible. I could never think up a six because it's too big an interval. But a minor third below is relatively easy and it becomes easier with practice.
