I am a beginner trying to get into playing the sax and have been searching threads tirelessly for info and advice on Altos and Tenors. I am trying to decide which I should start off on. I've heard so much conflicting info on what's easier, what's different, etc. So... What is the better type for a beginner? Why is it better? What is easier and why? What is more popular and in what type of situations is each type played? I just need some good all around information on which is better for a beginner to take up and why.... Can someone please give me some good advice? Thanks.
