I just learned that questions about transcribing music are off topic.

I do agree that if someone has a tune that they're having trouble notating, they shouldn't be able to just come here out of laziness and let us transcribe the difficult phrase for them. However, I think it is reasonable for us to help people learn how to transcribe.

Here is a proposal: how about we select or create a canonical answer addressing how to transcribe, and then all transcription questions could be closed, thanks to the canonical Q-A?

    We kind of already did that, but the quality of the accepted answer was not that good since the OP really just wanted the sheet music.

    @Dom - is there a canonical answer? Does this site have a list of canonical answers? Are you saying a how-to answer was written some time ago? If so, can you help me find it? Feb 3, 2020 at 3:52

    The top voted answer to that question seems to be the one we want: music.stackexchange.com/a/27235/45266

    @user45266 - Maybe I should remove my answer about getting started with transcription and shift it over to that question, and then all transcription questions could point to that one. Feb 6, 2020 at 23:46
