I am currently in a cover band and I have always had issues in memorizing lyrics of cover songs (especially those songs I do not like so much). The band is new and we had just 2 rehearsals... still other 2 to go and after that we will have a mini-gig in one private party. I have only 10 songs to learn for this Saturday, but I feel my mind can not memorize things so fast.
What's your opinion about singers keeping the lyrics on stage and looking at those once in a while when the mind goes blank?
I know it looks very unprofessional, but I do not see any other way to ensure I will not forget words..any advice is really appreciated:)
