Sax player is 100% correct, but I just wanted to give you these two scales, in case you were talking concert scales, not the actual scale you yourself will be playing.
(So if your conductor/director told the whole band to play a G concert scale, you wouldn't really be starting on G).

If your conductor is telling you to be playing an Ab concert scale, an alto sax would actually start on an F, and would be thus playing the F major scale. The notes in the F major scale are:

F G A Bb C D E F

If your conductor is telling you to play a G concert scale, then you would actually start on an E, and would be playin the E major scale. This key has 4 sharps.

E F# G# A B C# D# E
