After years of playing guitar and writing songs as a hobby, retirement has given me the chance to gig. Before the Coronapocalypse, I had two pub gigs a month plus a couple of summer festivals every year. The Coronocaust has put the kibosh on that, but I still hope to get back to gigging someday. While I'm laying low waiting for the pandem(ic)onium to blow over, I've been focusing on learning some of the songs I've written over the years. My problem is that I'm a terrible memorizer. So here's what I'm doing: I picked 43 of 'em (about a third or so of what I have on paper) and started going through the list. My idea is to learn a bunch, then add more to work on. I'd like to have between fifty and a hundred that I know well enough to perform. So I've been going through the list over and over. Each title is on a flash card. I keep playing each until I get it right, then move to the next card. If I get one right on the first try, it gets a check mark. If I get it right the first time three times in a row, I call it more-or-less learned and set it aside. So far I think I have 32 with three checks in a row. I've gone through the deck seven or eight times. So: Keeping in mind that I'm not great at memorizing, can you suggest any ways to improve how I'm going about this? Or does it sound like a sensible approach? Thanks!
