I've been long time sheet music reader and I've recently switched to chord sheets in desperate pursuit of improving my musicianship.
I've always wanted to reach a level where can arrange and transcribe very quickly.
Aside from some arpeggiated triads and 7th chords and basic voicings like quartal voicing or 157 left-hand voicing variations. and just repeating those notes, maybe appreciate back and forth. that's all I can manage.
yes, I play unconsciously different styles because I'm reading sheet music. but If you want me to take the stuff that I play thru reading sheet music and change some things to better fit my arrangement, then I cannot tell you.
another thing which I have a huge problem which I dunno if it's common or not but I suffer from this one path bias where I learn a piece a certain way, and I cannot unhear it that way. which means I cannot really switch style
you see marasy have many of the same songs but some of them are played in a completely different style and you have people like slsmusic that plays in different styles straight up
I don't know if this is due to a lack of knowledge or lack of creativity. whatever the case, from elementary school, I've been known to not having things click with me so that's why I am almost never satisfied with my own answers and writing becasue some of those are really bad and really hard to do well. I would do something, then look at someone else do it and they do it way wayyyy wayyy better than I do
for those who want to know what kind of music that I like is JPop, Game music.
