I've been attempting to transcribe the lyrics off this video for a while now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPhmOFXTVzo
I've long since transcribed an instrumental version of it from sheet music, but as far as I know the song version was not published as such, only as recordings. It's been easy for me to just layer a vocal part ontop of the instrumental, but what's not easy is figuring out the lyrics from a 100-year old recording, and I figured I'd have other people see if they could do any better.
Here's what I have so far:
Key: [?] = Unknown word, [???] = Multiple unknown words, [wordswordswords] = Guesses.
Down at the races keeping paces we don't care a [rat]
People are here from far and near to see the handicap
And everyone's taken their bets you see
They're backing their favorite one to see
The jocky is handed a horse is a dandy a positive winner is he
Look at the [?] with [hair in piles] and chaps of every sort
Cutting a dash with [?] of cash he thinks himself a sport
A [problem] that you can [?] reach the ears
And follow a volley of shouts and cheers
The crowd is excited and all a delighted as soon as the favorite appears
Now the fun has begun they are prepared to start
All the people are watching the [?] to see
With their hearts overflowing with ecstasy
Now the [cry] you hear far and near
[Grappling] every heart
The favorite [leads] [???]
There they go in a row oh what a lovely start
It's a hundred to one that you must confess
[That in] taking the win or you lose [you get]
Like a lighting flash [won] the dash [?] every heart
Away! x2 The galloping steeds depart
At home they fly they dance with your eye you don't think where you are
But [?] in doubt then running about you'll cry hurrah hurrah
The whip [?] crack [?] over the track [as many] horses fly
[???] x2 excitement now is high
The favorite horse is making a course the jock he makes a [?]
"Of course of course [he'll win awards]" the crowd begins to cry
He [nears] the track and way in the back [???] the judges place
Hooray! Hurrah! The favorite wins the race
See them all [???] [check]
You would imagine they break their neck
The fun is done and everyone prepares to leave the place
A look of glee you plainly can see on almost every face
We all return with [???] so we don't [care a rat]
Open wine! [???] We're back from the handicap
Hi, I'm new here, I just wanted to know how my transcription of Hans Zimmer's Interstellar into violin is, I hope you like it. Thanks!
I would be grateful truly grateful if someone could transcript infinity before the dawn. Such a beautiful song I have dying to learn how to play it. There are a lot of intricate parts that I myself as a newbie have had a difficult time figuring it out. This is all for educational purposes.
As of yesterday, I have made a new Patreon to try to get funding to get a MuseScore Pro Account to make more arrangements of pieces, as well as a few original songs for a comic dubbing group I am with. Excess funds are going to be used to try and get Sibelius, to further enhance doing what I love for people who love music.
Please take a look here!
First off, I am a noob in arrangement and transcribing. I can get the melody and cords fairly well, but with tracks like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qv43ay58618y8eq/06%20No.05%20Trinity%20Blood.m4a?dl=0
I would like to put the different instruments together so I can play on a piano but I don't know how (like, how to add in the chorus and the drum beats). Can't find any sheet music out there either. Anyone please help? If anyone can do it on a commission basis that's cool too! Thanks!!
I can find no good sheet music of this song. It's really simplistic but I am pretty much incapable of transcribing on my own. I don't need the drums or a full band, but getting the basic melody (and the two chords that get repeated over and over after every part on the sax) would be a major help. I want to make a song based on this one, sorta like how Die House was based on Minnie the Moocher.
I am dying to learn two pieces from different videos, but there are no transcriptions of them. One is a version of Moanin by Eldar Djangirov and the other is a version of My Favorite Things by Yohan Kim. I can't transcribe and have tried to do so, but I realized that I sucked. Would a kind soul please transcribe these pieces? I'd be honored! Thank you for replying!
So I have tried transcribing but I am not good enough at it to create anything that sounds good, so there is this not too complex piece if anyone could give it a go in transcribing it, I would appreciate it.
the piece stops at 1:23
Thank you for your time
i really want to transcribe this, but im stuck at the beginning. could someone help me?
I'm having a lot of trouble transcribing this song. I just need the beginning part done (The first forty seconds.) Everything else I can either do myself or use other sheet music pieces I found.
I can only find one midi file online that contains the first part of the song, and it isn't accurate enough for me to make sense of.

(Yes I'm spamming this on all my groups so beware.)
I'm working on a transcription for multiple songs for Howl's Moving castle, but I am inexperienced at transcribing and need as much help and feedback as possible. My goal is to be able to play this piece with the rest of the orchestra at my highschool, so it needs to be flawless.
Here is what I have so far, the songs I'm referencing are in the description:
Thanks in advance!
I'm not good at transcribing myself but I would love to have a sheet music of this song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpkbnIFsY2Y
It's only a piano, drums and one other instrument I can't define (something Marimba-ish) and it's really repetitive and not that long.
I would love if someone could do this!
Okay, I am doing a really big project, namely transcribing the Myst revelation theme. If you want to help and have really good, (and I mean it) transcribing skills, here's the link to the original music
Its in 7/8 timing, so its going to be difficult. I have made a group solely for the purpose of this piece. Please post a comment if you want to be a part of this group. Thanks!

I think, a lot of you know the YouTube channel of HDSounDi (https://www.youtube.com/user/MarK1Ira). At the moment, I try to upload every month a transcription of one of his songs, mainly songs with strings and piano. I want to know if there is any song you want me to arrange, so let me know then!
I was wondering what everyone thought about the legality of transcribing a song and publishing it on Musescore.
After some brief research, I found that it does seem that publishing a transcription of a song (even though the sheet music is completely written by you) is still breaking copyright laws.
I read somewhere that Musescore was created for people to upload their transcribed songs, and I understand that. I personally transcribe songs, but I try to transcribe a song that I can't find sheet music for anywhere else. If one can't buy the sheet music anywhere, what's wrong with me transcribing it? (Probably some flawed logic there... :P)
What do you think? Do you feel guilty or sqeamish publishing a song you didn't write on Musescore? I'm not that worried about it, I just want to hear your thoughts.
Hi lol I've come across a problem that I can't really decide on what song to transcribe next, I'm open to really anything I'm moreso leaning toward popular songs or something that a lot of people like. I can only make one more on this account (since I don't have a pro account lol :/)
Any suggestions?! THANX
So pretty much I just heard the most amazing transcription EVER so you need to go check it out like NOW.
And also, it only has like 50 something views and I'm like OH MY GOSH IT NEEDS MORE even though it was only posted like 3 days ago but whatever.
