Some music tips from skills exchange member and musician Bill Coleman.
Tip 1: How To Remember Lyrics
I normally need to learn a lyric reasonably well before I can hope to perform a song properly. Generally though, there’s a few gigs where I kinda know the lyric but kinda don’t. Solution? Take trigger lines (first line of a verse, say) for the whole song. I need to know the lyric well enough that once I read a trigger the rest of the verse will come after that.
Sticking them on paper and taping them to a monitor works, but if you don’t have the opportunity for that, prepare beforehand by writing them on your arm (this works well for me playing guitar, but maybe not so much for other instruments).
