TranscribedThe process of transcribing music is slow and painstaking. It involves listening to a piece of music, determining its key, and detailing the chords and bass notes used in the piece of music. The word transcribe means to make a written copy of, sometimes in longhand or on a machine, or even to paraphrase or summarize in writing. Transcribing can be done by means of phonetic symbols - in the case of music transcription, the use of Chord Symbols such as C#min7 or in musical notation the use of minims, quavers and rests.
