Hey all, I've filled in for a few bands here lately, both of which have a bad habit for not calling out the keys, they just slam it on and go. I'm doing just fine, however I'm not confident in the first half of the songs. I can pick up something fast and accurately transcribing alone however playing live, esp. in unfamiliar territory you don't get that luxury of finding your roots by feel, unless you wanna train wreck the band, lol. Do any of you have a methodical approach for picking it right up with solid confidence? I am practicing A LOT to random unfamiliar songs to acquire more instincts, but anything else? Thanks.
