Memorization is like eating an elephant. You can't just "memorize it" or "eat it." Unless your brain works that way, you gotta go one bite at a time. YOUR way of memorizing works for YOU. It MAY NOT work for someone else. Try this: |
Eat your elephant one or two measures at a time. Do the full band, Measure 36. Play it. Play it again. Turn stand around, play measure 36. ONLY measure 36. Repeat for 37. Then play 36 and 37 with music, then without. Continue until all is done.
Then do it again the next day, because 70-80% will be gone. But that 20-30% growth is what you're after. Within a week, it'll be 90% memorized.
