Connie, where do you live? I'm will to do a Klezmer intervention and prove to you that is not as hard to play by ear as you think. but if that isn't posible, look at lots of transcriptions, good ones, but make sure you have a recording of the transcibed piece infront of you. It doesn't matter if it's a Bach Cello suite or Kammen 9, playing from a written chart always sounds better when you've internalized what notes look like and what they sound like. I can actually prove it to you! Find any transcription of Tarras or Branwein, my book would work, but any one that has real transcriptions of klezmer tunes will suffice. Pick on Selection, listen to the recording exactly 10 time, none of the tunes are longer than 3min so this is a half hour max. Don't play just listen, watch and put a tick mark for every play through. Now, turn to the next transcription, look at it, don't listen yet. Close your eyes and try to imangine whomever was playing, performing it. Now try to read it. You will find that you will play it differently than you would of had you not listened to the other on. Your eye now has a clue, to the way the transcriber writes the stuff and how that person plays that lick, and you now have an ear that's 3 steps further down the road of learning this lanquage. Try that and get back to me on what your experience was doing that.
