Hi.
I was wondering if it would be easy to go from bass clarinet to tenor saxophone. Are the fingerings the same? Also, is tenor sax in the key of b flat?

Thanks

The tenor is in bflat.
The fingering is totally different - for a start on the sax by pressing the equivalent of the register/speaker key on the clarinet makes it sound an octave higher not a 12th.
