How do you memorize songs? I play them until I become comfortable with them, then I break them down into sections, then I start playing the section without looking at them, if possible the whole section with mistakes, then go back and review the mistakes and repeat. Finally I play looking at the music again. After several days of doing this, I have it memorized. Things that I don't do very well when memorizing is picking up the chords, and exact rhythms, as well as the words, are there any tricks for these? It seems some of the harder songs, are repetitive but the structure is not obvious, so they are easy to confuse the various sections.
