    KC you'd be right if you guessed your attachment would not work whereas it didn't.

    Don't worry about it. Just think of it as B Major (only 5 sharps!) :D

    I play bass and trumpet (sometimes, though more often lately) at my church. The Worship Leader has a lower voice so they take advantage of the digital keyboard's ability to lower the pitch a few steps. (Sometimes they go too low.) So, you might be looking at music or chord chart that is in G but you are playing it in Eb. On bass I have taken to using my version of the Nashville Numbering system where you number the chords. In the key of C - 1 is C, 2 is Dm, 3 is Em, 4 is F, 5 is G, 6 is Am, 7 is Bdim, and back to 1. Using this system you can play in any key if you know the scale pattern on the bass fretboard.

    On the trumpet, it's no problem since I have been playing all the scales in my warmup everyday since 3rd year of college (30 years ago). If I didn't know all the scales frontward and backward I would be in a fix since you never know what key a song will be in.

    I like the challenge... :roll:
