... or Stone Brain
Last night, I went to bed humming The Stone Frigate, which is one of the hundreds of tunes in the [fiddling] jam book that we use. Except that at the time, I couldn't remember the name: just the tune. This morning I awoke with the name in my head, but the tune totally escapes me. I think it would be easier if we had the memory hook of words to go with the tunes, but alas, we don't, and I suffer from all kinds of blocks because of that. More often that not, either the tune or the title eludes me. As I've mentioned previously, names and I don't get along very well.
Anyway, tonight is jam night, and I'll go again ... and do more sitting than playing again. The great majority of tunes are played too fast for me to sight read, so I note them, and try them later at home where I can proceed more methodically.
It would still be nice to have lyrics to associate tunes with, however. It would make it easier on my poor old brain.
