I am trying to transcribe 'Fine and Mellow' by 'Jose James' and at 3:25 the piano plays a short solo. I am finding it difficult to transcribe this however as even slowing the song way down it still sounds like a big mush of notes.

Is the pianist using a particular technique that may be useful to learn about first before attempting to transcribe that part? Is it structured in a way which I cannot hear which might help lay the foundations before trying to get the exact notes?

  • Do you mean 'transcribe' instead of 'transpose'? – Karlo May 21 '18 at 18:42
