I've been messing with some jazz. It mostly consists of practicing along with Real Books chord sheets, playing rudimentary chords to learn common changes, writing beginner walking lines and figuring out simple heads by ear. I'm still very much a beginner. To add to my woodshed 'duties', i'd really like to get started transcribing. I've got my free copy of transcribe and I've got some blank sheet music, but when it comes to actually transcribing, I freeze, overanalyze, worry I'm doing it wrong, get frustrated and quit. For example, this evening, I started transcribing the first solo from So What. I can play along with it and I'm finding the notes just fine, but when it comes time to put the pencil to paper, I worry that I'm doing it wrong... "Should that note go there or at the beginning of the next bar? Is that note dotted or shorter/longer? Etc..." Should I worry this much about making my transcriptions easy for others to read or should I just transcribe and figure that I'm the only one who really has to understand and know how to play them? Is transcribing a skill that I'll develop as I do it more & more?
