Hello everybody, I'm new here and I've just posted my composition "Smile for me" to this group. Frankly, I'm not really experienced in making or writing jazz music, so I am very curious about what more experienced musicians think about my piece. Maybe some of you could tell me what I can improve. Oh, and please ignore grammatical mistakes, I'm German...
Would you guys mind checking out my song? - please add suggestions
"Jazz + Funk = Junk"
Hello all! I just finished my second transcription project:
The original audio URL is https://youtu.be/DXOpUJe9Hv0
Not sure if I did everything correctly, especially Measure 9-16 sound a little messy (not even sure if I got the chords right). But I'm quite pleased that I was able to push myself a little further :D

Hi there! I'm new to Musescore, so I'm not exactly sure how these groups and discussions work, but I've come here to ask some fellow jazz composers/transcribers something. Would any of you be interested in helping me to transcribe (at least part of) Charles Mingus' 1963 masterpiece "The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady". Considering there's no sheet music online, I figured transcribing by ear was my only solution to ever playing it with an ensemble. However, I'm a piano and bass player, and my ears are not exactly tuned well to distinguishing between horn parts and percussion, so I was hoping to find people to aid with that. I'm posting this on Reddit as well, so please respond if you're interested!
