    I have to do this for my work at Uni, and to get it from G to C i transpose everything up a forth. Now as I havnt done this before Im a little bit confused in some areas.

    When they play an F note in the bass on the recording in G, when i transpose it do I play a Bb or a B?I have tried the Bb but it sounds really out of place?

    If anyone knows of any websites where I can view the scores in C online that would help. Thanks

    Ignore me there, i stupidly forgot the orginal was in G so there will be an F# so it would be B natural when transposed into C. Silly mistake but that should sort it out:D
