I was just wondering how many types of musical memory are there?
The obvious ones I can think of are:
1) Hearing, pitch memory (i.e remembering the notes)
2) Photographic memory (i.e remembering the score in your head, and seeing it when you are playing).
But my father told me that there is another type, which is Muscle Memory, where you can remember the feel of the movement of the fingers.
You are very lucky if you have all three, but I was just thinking... are there more types of musical memory?
Look forward to your opinions!
