You must be one of them younger fellahs! Still got both eyesight and memory!

I used to be able to memorise lyrics, but no longer.

Also, my trio and I have an pretty horrendously large repertoire.

My cheat sheets also have notes about arrangements so we know who does what and when.

I use a music stand but have it lower than my guitar so it doesn't come between me and the audience and I tend to just glance down at it as and when necessary, rather than reading everything.

Thankfully muscle memory still ensures he progressions.

Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
