    Ha ha, Geoff! Pressing "record" has a negative effect on my memory too, AND on my finger dexterity!
    Thank goodness that we can still put less-than-great vids out there and get some encouragement form Seasonistas to keep working.

    The "observed" effect. That's why we're such wonderful singers in the shower!
    I should start practicing uke in there too.

    Count me among those that when that camera is recording, I have issues with a song I otherwise know well.

    As far as memorization goes, I have a couple of methods that work for me. Obviously repetition. Repetition. Repetition. Yes, repetition.

    OK - as far as fooling myself, I had an experience while playing with a group. There was not enough room for everyone to have their music stands with the song sheets. So I figured that I would just share, and stood behind a seated lady where I could see her book. Well, she got disoriented, and kept turning pages in the book to find the song, so it was no longer a resource. Guess what? I actually knew the songs. I kept playing. The world did not end. Yet, when I tried to play them from memory, on my own, I still failed. Having the group around definitely helped.

    SO

    I started a new idea. I practice at sunset. With the lights off. My song sheet is there, my crutch, but as the sun sets it becomes more and more difficult to read it. Eventually you can't see it and guess what? You can still play.

    I do think if it's there, I need to look at it or I will get lost. If it's not there, I am anxious I will mess up, so I "need" it.

    When I really must absolutely learn a song off-book, I just play it overandoverandoverandover. That works. My wife is not fond of that technique, as the songs that I have memorized are now ones that she is sick of. Oh well!

    Innovative thinking here, Pueo!
    I can get that "sunset" kind of difficulty by taking my glasses off, so I'm good for practicing all day.
