Hi, professional trombonist here:

The third note in the B flat chromatic scale is a C.

Bb -> B -> D

You want the third note in the chromatic C scale, or the third note in a standard Bb major scale.

You see, this content is humorous because the third note of the B-flat chromatic scale is a C. Now, you ask, but that's the C, not the D, how is this funny? Well, this is because we assume that the content maker is talking about a standard concert band in which the trumpet players typically play on B-flat trumpets. In doing so, the notes that they read on their music are actually sounded a full step lower than written. So, if a trumpet player reads a D, they are actually playing a concert C. Thus, if the female trumpet player wanted to know the third note in the B-flat chromatic scale, a C, she really wanted the D.

Love, a music ed major.

Incorrect. D is the third of Bb MAJOR, not chromatic. It's the 4th note up from Bb on the chromatic scale. It's the 3rd note up from B natural on the chromatic scale, if that's what you were thinking.

OP here. Bb scale on a trumpet which is a concert C starts at C for trumpets. Sorry for the confusion.
#63 - mr skeltal (11/02/2012) [-]
Actually, he is right, Bb chromatic, which is trumpet C, starts at c, going C, C#, D. I've been playing trumpet and trombone for at least 10 years

They're talking about a CONCERT Bb scale, which for Bb trumpets is a C scale, so the third note for trumpets in the concert Bb chromatic scale is D.

I'm pretty sure the third note in the B flat major scale for trumpets is an E.

Notes of scale in order: C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C

Unless it's not a B flat trumpet?
#122 to #117 - mr skeltal (11/03/2012) [-]
no its a C

B flat B natural B sharp (also known as C) its a chromatic scale technically that is concert D.

Except the 3rd note in a Bb chromatic scale is a C. HOW THE **** DO YOU NOT KNOW HOW TO PLAY C. No valves ************ .
UNLESSSSSSS, she is referring to a CONCERT Bb scale. In that case ignore this. It's fingered 1 or 1 & 3. 1 &3 for the lower octave.
