Hi, I'm troxlerc@elon.edu. I've been thinking about what you posted. I got the impression that maybe you "hear" everything in a piece (harmony and melody). If I'm right, I suggest you work at picking out the melody when you hear something, or sing along with solo singers, like in the car. Male singers will be easier to "match." Try to get your head fully engaged in the tune. I think listening and then thinking about the melody are the two most important things in learning (the first for any instrument) but the second particularly for noter playing, because you have to play the tune "automatically." If you are hymn-lover, as I am, singing hymns to yourself is excellent -- as long as you're sure you're sining the actual melody and not harmony.
