    I found this link to a tuba arrangement of the Green Hornet theme.
    If any of you Brits know the arranger could you ask him to transpose it to Bflat trumpet?
    Since it is Finale I guess a C trumpet arrangement would be pretty easy to print.
    I also found a piano arrangement I think I'll buy.
    Working on this and Flight of the Bumble Bee is pretty good technical practice.

    At least here in the States the Green Hornet Theme was Flight of the Bumblebee

    Actually the Green Hornet Theme was BASED on Flight Of The Bumblebee.

    A jazzed up version to be sure and different enough to be its own tune.

    Yes, I can transpose it. It would be much more efficient if the orginator did it so he can claim the work.

    The Green Hornet was inspired by Flight of the Bumble Bee.
    If you look at G.H. next to the F of BB you will see it is not the same music.
    Solar Bell is, of course, correct.

    I have heard and seen Mnozil Brass play this live. It is a workout.

    Roman Rindberger had trouble playing this song, and I don't blame him one bit. This song barely gives you time to breath and rips your chops...Al hilt is pretty damn amazing to play it so amazingly. Props to Roman too, of course.
