Although I started out as only a classical pianist, I love playing the countless note for note jazz transcriptions available either for free on the web or for purchase.

But some Youtube transcriptions have a "rolling view" of the score and even a picture of a keyboard with the notes highlighted as they are played but no pdf score available even for purchase. I never understood why someone would make the score available in those formats but not in a printable score. Very occasionally, I went to the trouble of taking screenshots of every different picture in the rolling score and literally pasting them together but this is not really practical as a usual approach.

Does anyone have a suggestion about printing a score that only appears as a "rolling score" on YouTube?

Hi

I have done the same as you with a few that I was desperate to get copies of, but haven't found an easier method.

If anyone knows a way I'd be interested as well.

That said I have enough sheet music to last me for about another 3 lifetimes!

Cheers

Gee, Pianoloverus, we have something in common regarding Jazz! I understand your plight, but I don't know of a resolution. I have had the good fortune of finding sheet music I have wanted, after much searching. Hopefully, someone here will have one.

For rolling score on YouTube, I don't think anybody like to re-notate the whole score. You can expand the YouTube video to cover the whole screen. And the segment you want to copy just stop the video and use your shortcut keys to do screen capture (Shift-Command-4 on a Mac & Ctrl-PrtSc for PC or Windows-PrtSc for Windows 10). You get a number of these loose screen capture files you can use a graphic design program like Windows Paint, PhotoShop or other similar programs and paste the loose picture bits to form 1 or more pages. Still tedious but works.

Take a look at this:

I use it for static screen capture but once was able to use its scrolling screen capture but have forgotten how to do this.

Agreed. If you're interested in improving your jazz playing and becoming a better improviser, learn the solos by ear. You can always use a transcription/video to check your work. However, most of the free transcriptions I have found online have at least a few mistakes in them, so you really just have to trust your ear.

I'm not at all interested in or capable of transcribing them myself and since they're on the rolling screen view I wouldn't have to. And it wouldn't bother me in the slightest if a transcription had a few mistakes in it. I want to play this music but not become a jazz pianist/improviser. It just annoys me that there is no pdf available even though all the notes are shown on the screen.

Pianoloverus:

I've run into the same situation where there is a nice transcription on YouTube that just rolls by. I think those videos are posted by people who are not teachers, and who have no interest in sharing knowledge. Rather, they just want to show off what they have done. I've seen some where they say contact me if you want the PDF, so the people who make no such offer know their transcription cannot be played by others, and are apparently fine with that.

If you have the time, you'll learn a great deal by taking the time to notate them yourself in Finale or another notation program, or even "old school" by hand. I don't think it's necessary to transcribe everything ourselves, by ear, but writing it out is faster than that would be and you'll absorb it better than just reading it from a score.

When I was in college I used to write out Bach fugues by hand and soon learned how to write counterpoint very easily.

Thats a good point. Writing out music always deepens and expands one' knowledge of that piece of music, and beyond.
