A student just asked me the question from the “Ask Adam” page.
“Adam…..I have a problem of remembering songs I’ve already learned
when they haven’t been played in a couple of weeks…usually when I’m
concentrating on new material. How do you keep it all under your fingers?”
When I learn a new song, or am writing a song I have to almost have to “forget” every other song I know.
For example, I recently came up with an arrangement for “Killing me Softly” and I had to
play nothing but that song for a week.
