What kind of music? Do you currently have a certain song? How long do
you play?

1st way: Try to find transcriptions (not tabs)
2nd way: Slow it down! E.g. use audacity to slow down the track while
keeping the pitch (time-stretch)
3rd way: Use the space during the notes you can't recognize to add your
personal note - that's what i do if it's not classical music.

Best regards,
