leeneia tips for memorizing songs? (39) RE: tips for memorizing songs? 20 Aug 21

Matt Milton, here's something about intonation that I learned in workshops. Play with other people, and when you come to an iffy note, but play it for a long time. Listen to it and ask yourself "Does this sound good?" Don't worry about sharp, flat, etc. Just ask if it sounds good. If it doesn't, fix it. You might not think you can do that, but you probably can.

Another tip: play with a guitarist who has tuned with a tuner, and when you play, listen to the guitar. A guitar playing chords is like the foundation of a building - all the other instruments are based on it. It's not just there to look like a cowboy's in the room.
