    Dear Friends,


    Does anyone have a transcription of the piccolo part to "Penny Lane" by the Beatles?? I am joining a faculty talent show band next month on a version of the song and need the music. I have not been able to find it anywhere. If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it!!!

    I am so sorry. I covered that for Sound Choice Karaoke but I just didn't keep the transcription. We were doing so many tunes back when I did that, that I would just basically have a skeleton of a transcription and then toss the chart. What a goof.

    You say you have a month before this concert. You can be done with transcribing this in about an hour. This is no emergency! You can do it!!

    I wish you the best. Hope you have some fun doing it! (btw...I didn't own a pic so I used a D tpt. ha. I'm sure yours will sound even more authentic!)

    There's a link to a transcription on this page (about halfway down).

    Hope it helps.

    There you go! I only question the key signature at the end in that transcription...but it sure doesn't matter, since all the notes are accurate.

    You knew it was out there. ha. I had forgotten that there was so little to this. My estimate of an hour to transcribe...a little off. Maybe 10 mins. ;-)

    Vulgano and melkor... you guys are great.

    Make sure and use the piccolo pitched to "A". It's much easier (assuming it's the original key).
