I won't tell you how to memorize, but I will give you another bit of friendly advice:
If you are starting a thread to post a question, don't post it in more than one folder. That is generally considered bad Web etiquette. People here who are helping you out and trying to answer your questions shouldn't have to refer to multiple folders to see what has been said already.

Decide on which folder you think is most appropriate for your question, and post it there.

i think youre way too impatient- you havent even tried to memorize it yet.  youll feel stupid tht you put up a post for something that you could figure out the day later.

Hmoll is right:I already replied to you but in the Student's corner and was confusing to find this here again. allchopin: I understand the pianOplayer's point, you're implacable but maybe you have the reason under certain circunstances. I think pianOplayer doesn't have the harmonic structure clear in his mind, that's why he find the melodic line weird . pianOplayer: there's another forum about Theory and how can it helps for playing a piece: would be interesting for you reading it.

It's in the Student's corner, just after your second folder -How can theory helps reading or something like that...
