What is Ah Doe up to recently?

Ah Doe may seem quiet these days.

The truth is: Ah Doe has been extremely busy!!!

Working, travelling, cooking, being crazy, planning things and also transcribing music scores.

The reason why I weren’t sharing most of these songs is because they might not be that popular.

For instance, there was this request from a harmonica player who requested me to transcribe a fairly challenging piano accompaniment part of a song called “Mitzva”.

This is what that reader wrote to me:

I downloaded some of your work and they have much higher standard than many others which I downloaded. Over the past 15 years, I have been doing my song arrangement using Sibelius, but in all these cases, I either have a full score or some partial score which I can adapt the musical ideas. Now I have a song called Mitzva (by Maurice Arnold in 1961, composed for Tommy Reilly) that I would like to generate its score. The recording here is played by the famous Norwegian harmonica virtuoso Sigmund Groven, accompanied on piano.

And this is what I transcribed:

And for another instance, there was another customer who requested me to transcribe The Silk Road by Kitaro just for the flute and piano. This song is to be for the Ocarino solo performance.

And there you go, transcribing songs requires listening to the songs over and over again, extracting certain instruments from the song and putting them together, adding a little creativity if needed.

These layout of the music scores of these songs may not appear to be as nice as other music scores that are available at www.ahdoe.com because the requests are normally very straightforward and urgent.

So in short, Ah Doe is still alive and active. If you need transcription services, do email me at callme@ahdoe.com. I’ll see what I can do to help you

Cheers!
