Transposing music so that it can be played on a trumpet
Hello! I found a site where you can buy sheet music. This is great because it has a great selection in it's library of tunes that I want to play on my trumpet. However, the music is written mostly for piano and guitar. BUT it has a "transpose" option where you can select how you want the music transposed. I know that the trumpet is a B-flat instrument, however which option do I select (see attachment)? You can even set the program to default to your instrument's key for each time you purchase. The example I have attached says the song's original key is D major. Also see the transpose options. Which one would I chose to be able to play to lead vocal part for trumpet? Thanks!
