Has this happened to you?

As learners when learning a new tune we can take, at times, quite a while befor we get it even near right

I have found in a couple of cases that there is a tune that I know how to play but I've come to really dislike it because I've played it over and over again so many times.

I think that if I ever hear 'Ode To Joy' again I will loose the plot dazed

That's happened to me, too, even (or especially) with songs that I once loved. The solution is to set it aside for a while. You'll like it again when you come back to it later.

Thanks Dianne

Sounds like good advise. And will dothumbs-up

But I still think that 'Ode To Joy' will never return to my repertoire. red_cursing

I usually just listen to someone who can play it lots better than me... that inspires me to continue and I learn that I really do like the tune, just not so much when I play it so poorly. LOL

Ode to Joy was not so Ode'd to Joy-ful for me until i actually started playing it in tune.

Its really is a good one to practice vibrato on as its all 1 string and sounds good at any temp

I never said I liked it, wink.. I said it was a good one to play and practice on.  I'd like to play Moody Blues, John Denver or even some Jim Croce. But at alas, for now, its ode to J.... that is...for now

Yea, I am play some of JD's music already. Not tired of that yet. I started in on a few fiddle songs to take my mind of traditional violin. I'm doing Arron Boat Song, Stinky's Blues, and Santa Anna's Retreat. I like how these flow and pretty simple, but great for learning on.

I picked up a book called "The Fiddler's Fakebook". It's loaded with almost 300 pages of fiddle songs from every genre of fiddling. Simple to extremely complex. It should keep me occupied for a few days or so...or so....or soblurry_drunk-2127

I think it happens to me when there is some tough part of a tune that I can't seem to get right.  Then that part becomes a worm in the apple of my eye.

I am inclined to put it aside when that happens, figuring that I'll be able do the whole thing and enjoy it after my skills improve.

Song's do tend to get a bit stale after you've played them 200/300 time's. A song you think is beautifull doesn't sound so beautifull after that many plays.

I rotate which song I'm working on to avoid getting "burned out" on a particular song by working it too much.  But different things will work for different people.
