Am I transcribing ineffectively?
When I hear a lick I like in a song, I'll get my bass and slow the song down in audacity or something, hear the note, the find what it is on the bass, dynamics and rhythm are noted, etc
Thing is, I see people jamming on youtube and they seem to be able to hear a melody another player does and repeat it, and I doubt the way I'm doing it helps. I think they'll do something like get someone to play melodys and they get increasingly complicated. But I've read on some sites to do it note for note, not one melody/phrase at a time, so what do you guys think?
Keep in mind this is for stealing/modifying/learning from other players, not to put onto a tab/notation site
