    I'm looking for some fun songs to play. I would prefer something lyrical that is in e minor, and something I can find for free on the internet, but I would love to hear anything else anyone likes.

    I enjoy playing from the Beatles Songbook, from memory Eleanor Rigby is in E minor.

    Regards, Stuart..

    Summertime. Should be in Wikifonia if you cannot find it anywhere else. You can transpose it there to any key.

    It's not in e, but on a flugelhorn, "Petit Fleur" is about as lyrical and fun to play as anything you'll find. Since the flugelhorn's compass is so close to that of a soprano sax, and they're both Bb instruments, just download a copy for fish horn and have at it. Some of the intervals are quite interesting. The same applies to much of Sidney Bechet's work, such as "Si Tu Vois Ma Mère".

    "Serenade" by Gretry on the back of the Arban book; dunno if it is in the commonly used version, my own book is a quite unusual edition with more stuff in the back.
    E minor, pretty, simple, quite feasible to use as basis for improvising.

    Zelda's Lullaby from the Legend of Zelda. You can find it free and it is very lyrical. It is meant for an ocarina but adapted for trumpet (I like it best on Flugel)
