How Did You Learn To Play By Ear?
I started playing music at 32 yrs old w/ no prior instrument experience and no prior listening to Irish trad. Just decided one day to start out of the blue after visiting Ireland. I use the notation on this site to memorize the tunes. Would like to some day learn a tune by ear just from listening to a recording and not looking at notation. How did you learn to play by ear? Any tips?
I go to sessions but I can rarely tell what key a tune is in if I don’t know that information already.
