How to Transcribe

3 thoughts on “Music & Videos

  1. Where can I obtain a program transcribe interesting solos from CDs, so that I can study them at my leisure?

    I play tenor sax, trombone and keyboard.

    Appreciate your guidance/ direction. Thanks

    • Hey Neil,
      My first suggestion would be to not rely on a program, but to develop your ear. I wrote a piece for DownBeat on how to start transcribing (I don’t think it’s on their site anymore. If I can I’ll post it here). I’ve noticed a lot of folk get put off by one of two things: 1. they start at a more difficult point than they’re ready for. Don’t make “Countdown” from Trane your first transcription (unless your ear is already that developed). 2. they get frustrated to easily. Our “inner critic” is telling us things like “this isn’t working”, “I’m not getting better at this”, It’s be easier to just get a copy of the transcription from somewhere else (like a program)” If you stick with it, your ear will improve and you’re improvisation will improve as well.
      Hope that helps.
