yeah, if its just MUSIC, your Okay... if you hear VOICES you'd be a songwriter, not a composer, LMAO...
Hi Karl, it's almost reassuring to hear someone else has the same problem I sometimes do, annoying as it is. I am in agreement with Don - sometimes it is hard to keep track of what you are trying to express. I find going slow and practising the transcribing process is the way to go. I also go over the music extensively in my head, and try to work out the details (intervals, accidentals etc) mentally before going to the piano and/or manuscript paper. That in itself is a good exercise I suppose!
Take it slow and practise, practise. practise!
