lefthanded guitar Reading Lyrics vs Memorization (138* d) RE: Reading Lyrics vs Memorization 06 Jul 17

I find it hard to sing in public without referring to my 'cheat sheet' of lyrics, even songs I know by heart at home. What 's the big deal??? If it's good enough for Paul Shaffer (most underrated bandleader in the world), Barbara Streisand and the New York Philharmonic, it's good enough for us folkies to read the'charts' on Rise Up Singing; or anywhere.

This ridiculous snobbishness does not befit the spirit of folk music.
