Any hints on remembering "start tags"?
I know this is more a performance question than a session one but I hope someone will indulge me. I have recently been given some new material to learn, which I have almost done. My problem with some of them is hitting the first three or four notes; when I do find them I’m away with the rest of the tune.
I’m the same in a session, if someone asks for a tune (even one I know very well) I sometimes go completely blank until someone dumdy dums the beginning.
With all the wealth of experience out there, any hints please?
And yes, I already know that if I can’t play it, I haven’t learnt it and also that I’m at that age that when I’m stood in a doorway, I sometimes wonder if I’m coming in or going out.
