Thread Name: Tune Req: Witch of the Glen + Sweetness of Mary
Subject: RE: Witch of The Glen/The Sweetness of Mary
Don't feel like you're the only one this happens to! I was in a session last night, and folks started playing something that sounded vaguely familiar. I asked the name of the tune. When I heard it, everything clicked into place and I could play along. I guess I've been hanging around computers too long. I couldn't access the data in my brain without a file name!

When I started playing with others, I'd try to learn the whole durned tune all at once. Once in a blue moon, I can do that, but it's usually more productive to concentrate on bits. Get the first measure, then next time around the second, etc. It still takes a few times hearing it in a session before I can learn the whole tune, but perhaps someday I'll be able to ken a tune the first time 'round.
