GloriaJ Folklore: How many tunes can be remembered? (29) RE: Folklore: How many tunes can be remembered? 31 Aug 11


Willie Clancy, the irish piper,is supposed to have had about 3000 tunes in his repertoire. Anyone can learn to remember hundreds of tunes or songs but you have to work at it.I've noticed now so many people taking books of their songs to sessions and playing from them.Thats ok - but I believe it's much better when you learn a piece because then you make it your own
