Ok, this is probably going to sound totally ridiculous to you guys but does anybody else have this problem or have any ideas on how to learn songs??? My mate and I have been playing together twice a week on and off for ages. We usually play the same selection of stuff but despite having played each song loads, I still have to use a chord sheet because I cannot remember the chords and it makes me feel so stupid and amateurish. I am wanting to play a few open mic nights but I am going to look a right arse getting up with my sheets. I know the songs well but I just cannot commit them to memory for some weird reason. Does anybody have any suggestions - other than give up playing - that might help before I go crazy!!
Its really holding me back as I would love to just be able to learn a few songs that I could just play through without a poxy sheet in front of me! Like a proper guitarist would do. I am only talking chords here too, not soloing. I am such a looser!! HELP!!!
