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.
So... Screwed up on the GO I posted earlier, here's the actual guitar only:
@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. https://fiddlerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/Scarborough-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.
