    Hey NW7 I had this same realisation recently. I got very good at playing and reading tabs but never really retained anything as I trying to play without the tab the skills were there but I need the tabs to prompt me even after practicing a piece hundreds of times. I’m working on this now and treating it as a learned skill. Like you said playing with your eyes closed has really helped with this and trying not to be reliant on the tabs also trying to recognise patterns with the sound and putting them together rather than learning single notes is proving helpful for big chunks.

    I’ve learnt about 5 songs now after not knowing any after about 7 months of playing. I’d love to hear anyone else’s tips for learning to memorise songs
