i used to play a lot then the music just kinda got burned into the fingers, i myself didn't exactly memorize the music, but my fingers definitely did...

not recommended tho, because in a concert, there were several times when my fingers betray me, since there's not much music in my head, when my fingers refused to play, there wasn't much i could do... couldn't break my fingers either, they're MINE, after all....

but after i got to university, (i'm not in music), with less time spent with the piano, i seem to have lost the ability to memorize any music in any way... sad... stupid school.... i'm at my final year now, with the ability decaying exponentially, it's non-existant now.... <cry>...
