    Im going bed, tommorow morning going to college so I wont be around.
    If somebody can reply in the next 5 min would be appreciated.

    YouTube - André Rieu - Nearer my God to Thee (Näher mein Gott zu dir) - Zauber der Musik HD

    This song. Is that in the key of G (concert pitch) and the notes B - A - G - G - E - E (concert pitch)

    Which translate to key of A for Bb trumpet which = C# - B - A - A - F# - F# notes?

    (the very first 6 notes played)

    Have I got that right or wrong?

    Im confusedz!

    That note seems very high for beginner. I can only go C-D-E-F-G on trumpet A B C is like imppossible let alone C#?.

    C# would be XXO + embrouchure right? and then B under that would be OXO?

    Can you give me at least the first 6 nots how you would play them (to sound that way) valve configuration?

    The rest I will work out just need a heads up

    Yep I think you've got that right but honestly stop worrying about what others can do and concentrate on your own sound and practice and stop worrying about transposing B flat to concert pitch most trumpet players think in B flat. C on the stave B flat pitch is fairly high for a beginer try to play simple long notes and tunes that go from c below the stave to g (there are plenty out there) my band master used to use drink to me only with thine eyes as a good starting point. But please Gxman realise that it does take time to devlope both sound and range

    Hope this hepls

    Andrew beat me to it, he is right, first you must learn to walk before running,
    get lessons as soon as possible, or at least get Greg Spence's book and CD. this will give you a start.
