I was trying to learn Southwind the other night and put my Nashville Dulcimers version of the song on an endless loop, that seems to work pretty well. The first time through I heard the obvious repeated phrases (4-3-2 repeats several times in that song in DAD tuning), so that I could hit that pattern in time and hear when it was coming up. With a few times through I was able to strum at least the chord at the beginning of each measure and the repeating 4-3-2. If I can get comfortable picking up songs like that it should go a long way towards making the clubs more fun for me. It's a lot more fun to hit that minimal one strum a measure than to be 3 measures behind trying to read through the tab .
