So I am contemplating ordering the "Real Book" from Hal Leonard in the Eflat edition.
The problem is, we're starting a combo, and my friend plays the trumpet. If he bought the Bflat version, would it be equivalent, or is the Bflat version just everythign written for Bflat instruments.
Don't get me wrong, I know how to transpose the sheets, I have to sight transpose and play 1st trumpet parts in school band anyways (the trumpets are BAD)
I'm just not sure how the real books work
is it like this?
Real book for Eflat instruments:
First chord for Eflat instruments: Gmaj
Accompanying chords written in : Bflat maj
Sorry if I seem like I'm rambling, i'm trying to post on my iphone on the bus
