Subject: RE: Folklore: How many tunes can be remembered?
When I was doing a LOT of Solo performing I had a small noebook with over 500 song titles , ALL of which I could sing on demand as well as Lord knows how many I could dredge from memory , sone learnt purely by absortion !
Never tried to count how many Jigs , Reels , Hornpipes etc I could play or at least busk along with and a LOT of 'standards' from Pre Folk days
It obviously varies from person to person , and the more you play the better they stick !
