    It may seem easier right now to have the books in Bb, but I think you should keep the ones you have. Fake books are a great way to practice transposition. It will also help you if you ever want to jam with a piano or guitar...

    The reason?........I play several instruments and I like to read in C - Bb - Eb and I wasn't planning on letting any of them out of my possession. I intended on 'trading' discs, which actually only means 'exchanging' a copy of what I have for a copy of what someone else might have - discs or printed material such as an actual fake book. I gave the most recent Bb fake book that I received in trade to a musician friend who was in need of one so that was reason enough to have made a trade. People gain in unexpected ways from transactions such as these.

    Nota Bene: Why do people make judgments about this anyway? If I want to read from a Bb book or an Eb book that's my privilege. Right??? If I want to 'learn to transpose' that's also my privilege and my own decision - not some "teacher" on the forum. I wasn't asking for lessons - only a trade !!!!!!

    Why not transpose? This seems like a good excuse to flex your music skill muscles.

    So a side note, what is a fake book?

    Fake books are books of jazz tunes the jazz musicians play from. There are an organized set of tunes of the jazz idiom. They call them fake books because years ago you could seriously only get these on the so called "black market" due to copyright laws.

    I remember getting mine back in high school and it was like going to a speakeasy. I went to this music store with my teacher and he talked to the owner and it was like this big secret thing. He waited till the show room was clear of people and he took me and my teacher in the back and he gave me one.... at the time being 15, I was a little freaked out, but as I look back it was funny as hell!ROFL

    Transposing is a good thing. It hones your skills and makes for a better band stand musician. Sometimes rhythm players aren't too savvy on how to transpose or write for Bb players. It's a good skill to have.

    I still think you should learn to transpose. Also, soliciting illegal activities or copyright infringement on the forum is generally frowned upon.

    Nota Bene: Being a jerk won't win you any friends on the internet or in life. It's your privilege to post on an open internet forum, but it's also ours, so YOU can't dictate the responses you'll get.

    Now get off the internet and practice your transposition!

    silly idea but why not memorize tunes and not worry about bringing a real book to a gig?

    Oh Trent, there you go being logical again. I think an electronic book is the real answer - maybe with sampled trumpet sounds to play the high notes that we only can hit sometimes.......................

    Note Bene: we have a marketplace forum for strict "business" transactions. If you post here, you and your opinion is free meat for anyone looking to comment. My teacherly instincts tell me that trying to limit responses just gives us more reason to deal with the "attitude". Sorry if you bought the wrong package.

    Great idea. Charlie Parker is said to have learned tunes in all twelve keys:
    Charlie Parker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I have not done this, so I can only imagine how it would help me get around the trumpet.
