Thread Name: Learning and remembering the words..
Subject: RE: Learning and remembering the words..
I find that the more songs I learn, the easier the learning process becomes.

Also - with folk songs, you can often nick a verse from another song if you forget the one your in.

I am getting a tiny bit better at covering my mistakes - but am still sadly apt to shout "bugger" in the middle of a song.

Actually, I think one of the most important things it NOT to make your audience cringe for you - ie - if you forget the words then just smile nicely, handle it however works for you & move on.
