TinkerPhil Posted January 19 Share Posted January 19 I'm not too sure how to phrase this question so I will blurt it out Like most people, I have always found learning the words to songs quite easy especially the chorus - I guess because it is repeated After a few singalongs, I will have learned a couple of verses too And the weird thing is when I then want to sing them say a year later I still remember them enough to sing along But I really struggle with learning a tune to the point I can play it without the music I just cannot get the notes into my head in the same way I can get the words As an example, I might have sung hark the herald Angels 3 times one Christmas when I was a kid - I don't think I've needed to read the words ever again Whereas last Christmas I played it 20+ times (much to my wife's discomfort) but for the life of me I could not play it today To me, the concertina isn't a "formal" instrument that you would expect to have a music stand with you wherever you play and with both hands occupied there's nowhere to prop up the music I was wondering about getting a pair of "google glass" specs - but they are way too expensive So, is the ability to quickly learn a tune something that I will only get with years of practice?
