I know I'm off my rocker ... it's presently sitting empty on our front porch.
Yes, I'm certifiably crazy to continue to play my horns, but Medicare won't pay for the notarization.
Joy to the World! That's lots of happiness to all.
It really started as a 2 part question and so the 1st part would be
1. Help on transcribing the song Carmen by La Sonora Dinamita
2. The second part is after you transcribe a song, how do you work out a 2nd trumpet part?
(So obviously normal band playing you might have a 1st and 2nd trumpet part although in this song I don't know if they necessarily do, but don't know that for sure.) The friend of mine said that he usually played the 1st Trumpet part and another guy that played Sax (I think an alto sax Not sure...it's the straight one that looks like what Kenny G might play ) Anyway, he said that the other guy playing the sax typically played the equivalent of a 2nd trumpet part.
Bach Stradivarius 180S37
The straight sax is a soprano, pitched in Bb, so if you can get the sax player to write it down or if he has the part, you are golden. On YouTube te song has the 2nd trumpet playing 4ths and 3rds below the 1st trumpet. Mostly (don't know what key) dominant (g in C), 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd where the lead is playing Tonic, Dominant,%,%,%.

Saxophones; Soprano Bb, Alto Eb, Tenor Bb, Baritone Eb, don't know for sure about a bass and never have known of one
We had a bass sax in our HS band. It was on wheels.
