Harry O How do you learn/memorize songs? (85* d) RE: How do you learn songs? 15 Dec 98

As in all learning situations, motivation is the key. You learn a song because you like it for itself. Learning for fashion sake is laborious and unconvincing in performance, by the same token, learning for effect is equally meritricious, learning to impress will only impress those of like mind - the "Whoofley-Dendum Bird Syndrum" - learning songs I have found relatively painless since I only learn those I (1) have grown up with and (2)have absorbed almost unconsciously. A large part of my extensive repertoire would horrify purists - but then, I can't help what sticks in my mind. Liking anything is so subjective. Harry O
