    I’m more motivated to learn by ear too, but if I find an arrangement of someone else’s I really love, I want to learn that one. Remember once you learn it and get the proper technique in, you can totally play with it and change it up. That’s a good creative exercise too!

    How are you at reading music? I find memorizing landmarks and reading by intervals is easier for people (and myself) than just trying to remember Every Good Boy Does Fine. Making sight reading something easy part of your regular practice routine can help too.
