Singer getting false note right (5)
I believe the answer is:
'singer' is the definition.
(I know that tenor is a type of singer)
'false note right' is the wordplay.
'false' indicates an anagram.
'right' becomes 'r' (abbreviation).
'note' is an anagram of 'teno'.
'getting' is the link.
(Other definitions for tenor that I've seen before include "Male singing voice of high pitch" , "Voice classification of Jose Carreras" , "General course - male singer" , "Male voice of high pitch, like Luciano" , "General drift or meaning" .)
