Here’s how to play the Pink Panther Theme (first line) by Henry Mancini. Talk a little about how I saw Plas Johnson, the sax man who originally recorded it.
It originally starts on an E# for tenor.
Sometimes it’s played in another key that’s a bit easier, starting on D# for tenor. Made a video for that key also that’s below the first video. In the second, you can see diagrams for all the notes. For the first video, if you’re not sure how to play some of the notes, check out the fingering chart on the downloads page

Do you have the notes to alto saxophone?
Hey Zeca, I have the notes, which I could transpose, that would take a minute. You could do it yourself too. Tenor sax and alto sax are apart by a fourth. So if you see the note D# (Eb) being played for tenor, it would be A# or Bb on alto sax. It’s a concert C# or Db (note that would be played by the piano). Seems like this tune is popular, so maybe I’ll make a video teaching it on alto sax.
Here it is on alto, https://saxstation.com/how-to-play-the-pink-panther-theme-on-alto-sax-first-line.htm
I know, it’s G#A, B C, G# A B C F E A C E E(flat)—–, D C A G A (x2)
The first note is a concert C#, which makes it D# or Eb on tenor. That same note would be A# or Bb on alto. What you wrote is a different key.

Have you learned any music by ear before?
