Every once in a while I try to figure out how to play a song on piano. I can get the melody, rhythm, and I can usually figure out the chords, but I have a hard time figuring out which chord notes are present.
To be a little more concrete, maybe I can tell that the top note is an E and that it's an A minor chord, but sometimes I can't even tell how many of the chord notes are being played (let alone which notes they are). It's even harder if the recorded piano doesn't have the same sound as my own piano
Is this just something that improves with practice, or are there a few tips to improve my transcription accuracy?
