How do you all remember tunes? I’ve been learning to play the fiddle for less than a year and now know about 15 tunes. The more tunes I learn the more I get them mixed up with others. I still find it difficult to get the tune in my head until I start playing the first few notes. I couldn’t sing or hum a tune that I know and I need to think of the first few notes or a particular left hand placement as a trigger to get me going.
How do others do this, given that some of you experienced musicians probably know hundereds of tunes??
