    Re: Who doesn't memorize tunes/songs?

    Good question, Randi. I'll attempt country, old time, hymns, classical, Italian, movie themes, etc. Not sure if I'm overlapping here and if they're all genres, per se.

    I envy your playing music...

    Re: Musician Jokes

    My husband says none of these banjo jokes are funny. Then he asked me: what do you call a mandolinist with a warped mind?
