My first guitar teacher said you need to play through songs every two or three days to avoid “drop out” (losing important information about either left or right hand “flow”). This is true for me. I am not trying to keep them performance ready.... just trying to keep them available enough that resurrecting hem isn’t like learning the song all over again. i have noticed that some of the finger picked songs that i learned a few years ago but have neglected for many months are now “in the graveyard”.
