Thread Name: Learning and remembering the words..
Subject: RE: Learning and remembering the words..
Hi - poor you, there's nothing worse than blanking out the song half way through.. I had the same problem and still do to some extent but found the thing that helped me most was confidence! Know that sounds stupid but one day I just realised that everyone forgets words some times and that the only person getting screwed up about it was me. The more I thought s*d it, the easier it became. It also helped when I sang ballady songs, with a proper story line that I could follow in my head, and the worse ones were the songs that almost have an 'interchangeable' second half - boy have I made some giant cock ups there!
Good luck - I suppose the other thing to do is get good at instant rhyming and make the lost bits up as you go along.... (Theresa Tooley!)
