    Hi Guys im looking for a help in figuring out the notes for the trumpet part of a song my friends band plays, Im new here and wasnt sure whether or not you guys do this sort of thing so if i am breaking any rules or anger anyone i apologize.

    The name of the song is "If You Want Me To Stay" originally by Sly & The Family Stone, there is also a cover of the song played by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Heres a link to a youtube video of the song YouTube - If You Want Me To Stay by Red Hot Chili Peppers
    I have attempted to play the song by ear but i cant do it, I have also scoured the internet for a tab or anything and cant find it, i went to my local music store and they told me to call their distributor in Raleigh NC but they couldnt help me either. I know that I could play the song if i Knew the notes but other than maybe the first 2 or 3 notes I cant figure them out.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Wade

    D B A F# D E F# D is the first descending lick.

    The second lick is A F# E B D E B

    Rhythms are for you to figure out.
