The song “Happy Birthday”
It sounds like happy_birthday_tenor_saxophone_tribe (mp3, right click and save).
The rhythm looks something like this.
On tenor the first note is C (in this recording).
That makes it G on alto.
For tenor, the melody uses the F major scale, but the lowest it will go is C and the highest it will go is the C above that.
C D E F G A Bb C
For alto, use the C major scale, starting on G. Lowest note is G, highest note is G an octave above.
G A B C D E F G
