Hey, first off, I'm not sure if this belongs here so mods feel free to move or whatever. But I wrote a piece on guitar in the key of E, and I want a trumpet to play the same notes over it, but since trumpets are in Bb i'm not sure exactly what to do to get the right notes, i'm not a trumpet player or an expert on theory yet, a little help on what to do? Sorry if it's a dumb question

As the trumpet is in Bb, when a trumpet player plays a 'C', a Bb actually sounds. Therefore, write everything a major second higher than you want it to sound.
Yeah, guitar is in the key of C.
