Just wondering if and how often you transcribe songs or breaks by yourself?
I am lucky as my dear sweet significant other usually tabs out any nice breaks that I find on youtube and want to learn. That is easy, but I felt it was time to step up and become a more proficient musician so I recently started tabbing a Scruggs video of Reuben (with a clock covering his hands some part of the time ) and found that it is therefore easier and faster to learn.
Nevertheless, the fact that I could simply find the tab for this tune online gives me the feeling I could go much faster just doing that. I know transcribing yourself is better for your development (especially a much better comprehension of the licks played) and it is actually really really satisfying when you have figured out even just 2 measures, but I sometimes (okay, often!) dread to start on it.
Haha , I guess I am just slacking again and looking for some support in the process here. Anyone ?
