    Hi! I have found a section of a song I want to play on my trumpet, however it isn't in normal sheet form. Instead it's a trumpet tab, and I have no idea how to play these. If anyone could tell me how to translate it into sheet music I would be incredibly happy. Thanks!

    If you send me what it is you want to translate I can take a look at it for you.

    So how tabs work is they tell you the pitch, you have to learn the rhythm from the song.
    So play the song over and over and follow on the horn and you'll learn it

    It's the trumpet section to Knights of Cydonia by Muse. The link for it is here. I'm not sure if it is correct, but if I just knew the notes I could work out the timings as the guy above me said. Thanks for any help!

    Hi J4ck,
    I'm not sure what you've got there!
    I can play while following chords and progressions but ouch, this seems more like what I've seen guitar players use. You may want to check with:
    1) someone who's played it before.
    2) ask a guitar player.
    Good luck

    Trumpet players DON'T ask guitar players about music!
