Thanks for the playing, @Panda-P.  How about posting your backing track alone for others to play against?

Here's my offering.  It's from December or so, so it's not fresh, although I haven't previously linked to it from the forum---so it's sure to be new to most listeners.

Sorry in case soundcloud unwantedly starts playing all my other tracks.

Can't find the sheet music I used, but it's a full step up from Ferret's, so there's something. Also, there's 2 measures lead-in.

@Panda-P Thanks.  Maybe some people can use your backing track.  It would seem to go with one sharp, no accidentals, and the piece beginning and ending on A.

@Ferret Thank you.  Good health to you soon I hope.

Fiddlerman's sheet for SF is good, although it doesn't go with that backing track.  http://fiddlerman.com/wp-conte.....h-Fair.pdf

A violinist playing that alto sax part as written, on top of the chords as written, may get a bad surprise. 

Alto sax is an Eb transposing instrument, meaning that when a C is written, an Eb is sounded. To the alto sax player, it is considered a C, but to the guitar player or a violin player, it is an Eb.  I don't understand why it's always done that way, but I suppose there are reasons.

A violinist could use that alto sax part with those chords if the melody were raised a minor third (three half steps).  Or they could play it as written, alone, without the chords.  Or they could play along with those chords by ear in a key signature of one flat, no accidentals.
