Thanks for the tips guys, that helps alot. Got the piece transposed fine. FWIW, I am transcibing a piece, used my tenor sax to write the tenor parts, put that into lily, now transposed and printed the 'bone parts, which are nearly a double of the t-sax parts, only a few minor changes. I don't play the bone so I transcribe either on my sax or on a guitar, whichever is easier for the song. (The music I am transcibing is various Latino music - salsa, merengue, cumbia, ranchera, etc.)

...(a very comprehensive answer to the transposition question)...

But, wouldn't he have to transpose DOWN a tone, when moving from a
Bflat-notated instrument to a C-notated one?

So - \transpose c bes,


Absolutely right, David. Sorry, Chip. After all that very nice (and actually correct) verbiage about moving the music 'up' when going from concert to Bb, I blew going 'back down' when going from Bb back to concert. (actually, down by a ninth, from notated Bb tenor sax to bass-clef trombone).

Thanks for the correction!
