Sometimes when I'm at home during the day, I watch I Dream of Jeannie reruns. The show features themed music bits in certain types of scenes, such as when Dr. Bellows is suspicious of something Tony Nelson did, usually as a result of Jeannie's magic. However, I can't always remember some of the music bits.

I tried an experiment with one bit that was troubling me. Instead of trying to memorize it, I memorized the type of chord the notes form. So now when I'm trying to recall that bit, I'm always able to do so because I can replay the chord in my mind.

This type of learning aid will hopefully improve my ability to recall other things (such as tcpdump features asked for in interview questions). At the very least, they'll improve my ability to memorize music.
