comment How to think in number chord notation for Major and Minor
I get stuck in this pattern of thinking also. I do think it would be better to analyze a song in a minor key from a minor perspective.

comment Changing key in a song convincingly
@atoth You could try some fully-diminished 7th chords, Augmented-sixths, Neapolitan sixth/Tritone Substitution, and some cadential 6/4s. I've also found trying out new scales to work fairly well in trying to modulate. You should check out the modes of the Melodic Minor. My personal favorite is the Mixolydian b6.

comment How to improve the process of transcribing my music into notation?
Record yourself when you get an idea. It helps me a lot to remember what I had written the day before.

comment How to transition between chord progressions of two songs in different keys?
It is quite easy to modulate from a tonal center of C to G because there is only a difference of one sharp. However, if you try to change from C to B that is a difference of 5 sharps, and is much harder to modulate to.

comment A natural minor and A Phrygian dominant
I understand what you are trying to ask. But could you provide the chord progression or an mp3 to your song?

It would help if you could provide the chord progressions.

@Tim Yes. It's what I usually do if I'm trying to play by ear.

If you can find the 2 half-note steps you can find out the key.
