Man, I can learn a tune really fast! I just can't learn it up to tempo and can't recall how to kick it off. Take for instance, "Old French". Well, I know for certain that I know that tune. I just can't (right now) recall how it begins. If I saw the first three or four notes, I could play the whole thing (and pretty much up to tempo). So, I take my time going over and over the tunes getting them to come to my blank mind.
Is this age-related? Message to the youth of the Cafe, "Enjoy it while you have it" - ha.
