Subject: RE: Learning and remembering the words..
Over years of stage time, I've resorted to several tricks to help me get through a "new" song. Putting a few key phrases on a "cheat sheet" and taping to my guitar sometimes works, except that you often look as though you are having a neck problem while you try to steal a glance at it (especially if you wear bifocals as I do)! For many years, I've carefully planned my program on cheat sheets: the order of the songs, the keys, etc. Once, during my single years, a lady I was dating decided to mess with my cheat sheet when I wasn't looking. As I started the concert, I glanced down and found she had added a cheat sheet of her own. It read: milk, eggs, cat food, bread ....! CHEERS, Bob
