Introduction & Transposing

in Brass

Hello.  I'm a new member of the group & a fairly inexperienced musescore user.  I've been playing the trombone for 51 years & the euphonium & baritone for 42.  @ 10 of those years professionally & 25 semi-professionally, & the rest just for fun.  I've played in many groups of different styles, but my favorites have been big band, brass quintet, & symphony orchestra.  I've also enjoyed tuba-euphonium ensembles & trombone ensembles.  Merry TubaChristmas is one of my favorite annual events.  Due to pain & wear and tear, I've recently had to put down my trombone - at least for  a while.  But I'm enjoying playing my new euphonium.  I've been arranging for big band & brass ensembles for more than 20 years.

This may be the wrong place for this question... Is there a way to transpose & print the transposition?  Thanks in advance.

Please help me for the perfect Valentines Day Present (Song) :)

in Trumpet

Hello fellow players,

i need your help in finding the right notes from the Song:

Left Boy - Bitte brich mein Herz nicht Baby

I would like to play the lead singing melody on the trumpet (cause its learn-able and one of my gf's favorit tracks).

since i have never done anything like thats  i am having a little troubles, could you please help me with you experience and well trained ears?

so far i know:

concerpitch Key = Bb Minor ( which would be C Minor for B trumpet right?)

So far i am guessing:
Ab - Bb -Ab - Bb - C1 -Ab - Ab - Bb
Ab - Bb - Bb -Ab- Bb- F (x2) 

or it it:
Eb - F - and so on? 

Thanks a lot i know its a simple track but please help me :DD

The double bass

A double bass goes to a psychiatrist.
Double bass: Doctor, someone told me I sound depressed.
Doctor: Let's hear it!
Double bass: G - D - ,A - 'E.
The psychiatrist's face darkens.
Doctor: I refer you to a good friend of mine. He will operate on you.
Double bass: And what will become of me then?
Doctor: A cello, a viola and a violin.

Actually Taken Music Theory?

in Brass

Hey, just curious, out of the people here who work on transcribing pieces from songs and such, how many of you have actually taken a music theory class/lessons/self-taught.

(If you've gone to college for Music, then please don't respond. I'm curious because I'm noticing a lot more pieces and transcriptions on here that have chords and such that don't make much sense.)
