Now I'm working on transcribing some comps by Frankie Dunlop, Philly Joe and Paul Motian, hoping that it will help me develop more authentic vocabulary in my playing.
The one thing I'm terrible at the most (and there's lots) is transcribing. I've done it and can tell you beyond passion - I'm sooooo bad at it. Ironically I can read like mad... Just can't transcribe.
Sure glad people like you exist to make my life easier.
