    Re: How to remember tunes?

    Sing the melodies to yourself. Especially as you are learning them. You can’t play it if you can’t sing it.

    Re: Monel strings

    I also prefer the Mangan strings. Like the heavier gauge offerings. Have them on my Gil, A2 and Godin. Would put them on my Mann if there was a good C string gauge.
