I have spent so many hours trying to understand this and every website I go on tells me something different!

I have the following sax pieces in the following keys, and ideally I want to get the music in the different keys needed, so that a piano and a bass and lead guitar can play along with me.

Please can someone tell me how to convert these keys?

Sax G major = Piano ? = Guitar ?
Sax D major = Piano ? = Guitar ?

Thank you!

For your G major the others need to be in B flat.
For your D major the other parts need to be in F.

This is assuming you are an E flat sax.
