Subject: RE: Folklore: How many tunes can be remembered?
Oh PS-- if it's a tune with words I will have the tune play in my head just from a glance at the title or text. Flipping thru a songbook is thus a painful experience, but I can refresh a tune recall just from a look at the words.
Age seems not to affect that-- if it's in there it's in there, and just needs different access to get AT it.
I seem usually to recall (by ear) the preferred key as well.
