So many tunes

I've been taking old-time fiddle off and on for five years now, and I have so many songs in my recordings that I don't know how to efficiently keep up with them. I tried to start writing them as sheet music, but didn't get far with that project. I respect the fiddlers that can remember so many tunes. I guess it will just take time and practice.

So.... How many tunes are you talking about? You mean in your listening (maybe someday learning) collection or your learned tunes? I used to think my collection was ridiculous (and it is), but this weekend one of my jamming friends proudly and confidently said he had over 16,000 songs in his archives. I'm pretty sure I don't have quite that many. They are not really organized beyond alphabetically by genre.
My list of tunes I can play without prompting is 139ish not including tunes that are strictly bluegrass. It is an ever evolving list with new tunes added and occasionally one forgotten.

That is awesome. Some of the players I know seem to have an endless database in their brains. I can't imagine 16k.

His archive is in an ipad
