[Lesson 1] The writing guidelines: how to transcribe the lyrics

Type the correct words as you hear them in your favourite songs

  1. Listen to the song from a reliable audio source
  1. Only add lyrics you have transcribed yourself
  1. Transcribe all repeated parts in a song
  1. Transcribe the lyrical audio content only

Do's and Don't

  • Do - Always listen to the entire song while transcribing
  • Don’t - Copy and paste from other sources
  • Don’t - Use multipliers (e.g. avoid x2)
If you have doubts with lyrics, you can always ask in the Musixmatch Community Slack channel
