Hi folks, I am currently into transcribing and started to transcribe some easier songs. But if I want to approach a more difficult song, I wonder if you think that learning it from sheets its more rewarding than trying to transcribe the piece? It's very hard sometimes because of all the instruments playing together and all the effects etc.. even if I could manage to transcribe a part of it eventually, it would have a lot of mistakes and would take a lot of time... Maybe it's a better idea first to learn a couple of "harder" songs from music sheets and then start to transcribe similar music? I mean, when you transcribe a lot of songs of a certain band and you learned some of their songs from music sheets, you may identify a lot a chords/voicings/etc they tend to use regulary..

hey mate, transcribing isn't easy, but it's like any other skill - the more you do it the better you get. There is a software called Transcribe which allows you to slow down the music and makes fast passages a bit easier to work out. Once you got the song, practice it for a week or however long it takes you to nail it like you can play it and read the paper at the same time.
