Hey Everybody,

Another question, a transcribing question but a quite simple question actually the hard work allready has been done. I'm transcribing Lady Marmelade by Christina Aguilera for my coverband's brass section..

First listen to this Awesome intro


now I'll wait a few minutes untill you're finished listening to it 5 times..

now I think of it there are 2 questions really:
  1. on 0:27 - 0:30 - there`s a sort of glissando / triller how do I communicate that on paper, what symbols? (the playing aspect is not easy but I get it done.
  2. on 0:40 to 0:44 there`s a whole note ending in a chromatic downward scale (from B to D#), is there a symbol for that?

You managed to confuse me: alot of effects there, and I just realized I don't master language well enough.
0.27 is what I would call "portamento", a generic sloping down. It is straight line after the note. Kind of \
0.40 is a Glissando. probably written with a generic snakey line similar to portamento, unless you want it to end neatly on the D#. In that case The line connects the two notes.

"Lip Trills" all over the place

I will probably edit this post after the next coffee.

Click on the above image while YOU prepare the stovetop. Quite intuitive.
I would appreciate if some indigenous speaker could enlighten us on the appropriate Anglo/American terms

Ah I see my mistake now, it`s not 0:27 but more 0:29 to 0:32, it sounds like a glissando + a triller

so it's a slide C to E (high) but each note is a triller.. it's quite difficult to play as well.

Third example of mine.
Trumpets do a lip trill.
Saxes press the RH top side key (high E).
