The Waterboys – The Whole of the Moon

Back in the day, I loved this song! It was great to hear trumpets on the radio while it lasted.

Although I thought this song was in C major?
I’ve been learning this tune on keyboards and was partway through picking up the trumpet solo when I cam across your work. Thanks so very much!!! Wonderful job


Thanks very much, Gerry. Much appreciated.

Yes, the song is in C-concert Major. I transcribe all of my charts for Bb Trumpet, making the transposed key D Major in this case.

If you want to play it on keyboards you would need to transpose every note down by 2 half-steps, which is the reverse of what trumpet players need to do when they play piano charts.
I hope that helps.
