Hi All,
I am doing some research at the moment into how musicians learn, remember  
and include in their playing, licks and phrases. 
Some people write them down as they find them, others adapt them and keep  
practising ones from records.cd's until they become their own and then find some 
So what do you reckon is the best way of learning and remembering new tunes  
and harmonies, chord patterns, licks and phrases? 
Has anyone actually written down their store of 'classic/trad' jazz phrases  
that they have built up over the years? 
How do you do it?
