Following the lifting of pandemic restrictions, I found that I have a lot more work. I am playing in several cover bands. This is great, I'm enjoying it. However, I'm struggling to learn 60 to 100 songs in a few months time. My day job is demanding of my time, but I set aside time each day to practice. It could be as little as 15 minutes or as much as 2 hours. I'd like to maximize that time. What I'm doing now: I usually print out a lyric sheet with chords. If one doesn't exist, I'll make one. I will sit and listen to a song and write notes in the margins regarding the arraignment. Tempo, feel, rests, parts that I will sing, etc. I usually have this sheet on a stand when I practice with the band for the "first run through". I'll add to the notation as required. I take it home and use that for practice. I find myself playing along to whatever youtube/mp3/streaming has the song. Next practice the sheet isn't on the stand, it stays in a binder. If I need it, its there. I feel like this is a slow way of learning a lot of songs. Also, I'm finding that my woodshed time- general learning and practicing more- has been impacted. I'm not looking for a magic bullet solution, I don't mind putting in the time. I want to use what time I have more efficiently. I'm curious how you do it. I'm a weekend warrior, hobbyist, or amateur musician. I have taken lessons on and off since 1989, but I am primarily a self-taught player. I can read a little, have a working knowledge of chord theory and harmony. I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination.
