Some grand advise here from y'all. I started singing the 'old mans song' recently and froze, so went on to another and cos i stumble on the previous song i did it again! Nerves y'see.
I think Mudlark's idea of keeping the words close by and singing the song anywhere and everywhere is a great help..
I reckon the irish had the best idea when they invented 'mouth musi' (was it the irish?), so that if you forget words, lines or verses you can 'scithery idle doodle, didle doodle, didle dar' yer way through 'til you remember...well on some songs at least!
