Is there a musical notation applications that makes it easier to transcribe the trumpet part for rock and roll song?
I've used Musescore (free app) for editing music notation and printing sheet music, and had this question (See here for the original question asked in Musescore forum https://musescore.org/en/node/288400#comment-915028).
I'm repeating information here just so this question stands alone.
I'm trying to transcribe the Trumpet part to 10th Avenue Freezeout (by Bruce Springsteen) and use the following workflow (currently).
I receive a PDF that has the lyrics and chord changes (like A-7, C, D-, etc). I use Drawboard PDF (on SurfacePro) and make notes on the lyrics as to what I should play and when. For example, I'll label "A", "B", "C" in the lyrics and then have hand-written trumpet parts with "A", "B", "C" and know that those notes are played where I've marked "A", "B", "C" in the lyrics.
I currently using Transcribe! and hand write parts, but would like to know if any music notation application could be used as follows.
(1) Create a song with just the lyrics, and the measures.
(2) Listen to the song and transcribe the trumpet notes to the musescore. Initially as text, just the notes because the rhythms I'll have listened to. Trying to get the exact rhythms in some cases is not needed because I know the songs and can "feel the rhythm". The purpose isn't to get an exact sheet of what I need to play but a rough reference of what I need to play
(3) If time permits and so far it hasn't, I would convert the text notes to the actual rhythms to create an actual trumpet sheet music part with lyrics included on the same sheet of music.
I've asked this about musescore and was told it doesn't really support this approach.
