Something seems to have happened to the sound files for the transcribing course (at least for me). I had no issues when I went thru TR-105 a couple weeks ago, but when I tried to do TR-106 yesterday and today, I just get a white box where the files should be. Went back and checked the other TR lessons and can't access the files for those now either.

Using Firefox 12.0, if that matters.

Same thing happened to me when I first loaded the TR-105 page, but the tracks appeared when I reloaded the page.  Maybe the link to Soundcloud is a little slow.

Tried reloading multiple times to no avail.

It does seem to be some sort of issue with Firefox (maybe in combo with Windows 7). When I brought up the lesson on Internet Explorer the sound files loaded fine. I also tried it on another computer (running Firefox on Windows XP) and they loaded there as well. But Firefox on Windows 7 is a 'no-go'.

But bottom line is I got the files downloaded, so I can start transcribing now!

I'm using Firefox and Windows 7, works fine every time, no need to reload anything.

I tried transcribing awhile back but always got sick of listening to the same song before i could finish it so hopefully these lessons will be my inspiration to continue. After 7 years of practicing I need to learn more than A D E songs.

Just wanted to add, I got the first one right in 30mins :)

I'm not using the worksheets as I'm trying to get the notes and rhythm myself but I'm having a problem with measure 2 of Exercise #106-F.

The worksheet says, 3 eighth notes, 1 quarter note and a dotted quarter note

But, I get 4 quarter notes and a half note (from listening to the note durations), but I can't see where I'm going wrong, anyone else trying to get the rhythm themselves?

regards,
Darka

I must not be hearing this right, but on 106D Last note in 1st measure and 1st note in 2nd measure are the same and very quick. Or is the 1st note of 2nd measure completely different.  Thanks

They're different.   :( 

I'll give you a hint.  The second meaure is a palindrome (read the same way in either direction, forward or backward).

Thanks, I got it now. It really sounded like that note was played twice. I had to speed it up a little to hear it correctly. The transcribe program is great.

Really enjoyed transcribing these exercises.

I just made a couple of mistakes on #106-E

[start mod edit ...

In a certain bar, Justin plays a certain note on the G string fret x, where I played it on the B string at fret y. This happened again in the another bar ...

end mod edit]

Does this make any difference as it is the same note.

TBH I have since tried playing it the way that Justin plays it and it seems easier to play as it is not as far a stretch for the following notes.

You've answered your own question.

I'm having a heck of a time figuring this out myself. I could play a lick, phrase or solo in 2-3 places and they all aren't that different in terms of awkwardness. :P

I do think that Justin says somewhere that where the reach is the easiest (where notes are closest together) is probably the right way as it will be the most logical way.

@Darka... the answer sheets have been proof read multiple times. It's easy to get your bars mixed up when you start and stop a lot. Sometimes it helps to go back to beginning and listen to it while you count the notes. Just tap your pencil on the notes as they play. That should clear it up for you.

In the brief description of the exercise #106-D there is mentioned a tied note in the very end of the track but in fact that note appears in exercise #106-E instead.

Hello there,

It seems no one has posted here in a year...Anyway, it seems the "random" notes have got me a little puzzled I went searching for notes 2 frets lower/higher than the scale is. For instance, I thought I was hearing notes D# and D (frets 4 & 3) on the B string while they were actually the same notes but on the G string (frets 8 & 7) meaning I got the notes right but on the wrong string...Are they counted as correct? Meaning am I transcribing it right or not?

Thanks

In the instructions Justin says, "So the exercises in this lesson are based around the Minor Pentatonic Pattern 1 (same as last lesson) but this time I am adding in other notes that do not belong to the scale, so you have to find them!!"  So Justin gives you a clue that you should be looking around the A minor pentatonic position one; that is, between the 5th and 8th frets.

That being said, most people (especially, me  ;D ) find it difficult to tell the difference between the D note on the B string and the D note on the G string.  If I were you, I wouldn't worry too much about it.   :)

Hey,

Thanks for the reply  :) Well I kinda took "around" to the next level and went searching for the right notes all over the fret board, thanks for pointing that out.

Regards.

On 106 B, the fourth measure has an F, on the and after the second beat, when it should be a F#. The tablature is correct but not the note on the staff.

and the C# on 106 E is very tricky

Hi Guys,
Just started trying to transcribe a song to coincide with the intermediate course. I am using Torn by Natalie Imbruglia, I have downloaded this song and am using Transcribe to get the chords. I have also used Capo to do this. My problem is this, I feel I have done a good job  and got the first few chords correct. When I went to look at the Pop Song book I seem to have gotten all the chords sharpened by one half tone. Am I totally wrong or can the song be played using different chords. I feel a bit frustrated at the moment. Anyone got any advice. Cheers.

Hey,

In #106-D I've the feeling that in the answer there's a note missing.. I've been listening to the track various times and I'd add a B on the first string at the beginning of bar 7. Don't you agree? Or is it a muted note maybe?

Thanks!

Hey Justin,

Greetings from China. Like ur lessons very much, but I couldn't see(or download) the excercises in this transcribing lesson 105 and 106, I downloaded the pdf, but couldn't see the MP3. Could you please help to reply?

Thanks very much

Michael

The mp3 files are links to soundcloud, maybe you can't see these links because your browser is blocking them, check your browser settings because I had the same issue and now I can see the audio files.

By the way, I just wanted to thank Justin for this course, I see that not too many people dare to take this lesson (I guess because this is not an easy thing), but this is a really good resource, thank you so much!!!

In Exercise 106-D I did get the D# note in measures 5 and 6 but played them on the 4th fret  of the B string ... in stead of the 8 fret of the G string.

I count them as right  ;D

Enjoying this course :).

Just did the 106-F exercise.
Got the last three notes wrong, although I started correct and then changed it :)

Was a bit of a trickster as Justin says himself. You're also expecting it to end on the root note, so I got a bit confused about the last part... And finally got those three notes wrong.

After correcting and checking again, I have to agree: The Answer Tab is right, and I was wrong  ;D
