Like being able to hum it, or hear it in my head. If I can't do either one, it becomes really difficult to reproduce the sound.
That help any??
I agree. If you can't sing it or know the song very well, how are you going to play it? He'll I don't know how many songs I've faked well on guitar because I could sing it and knew it well in my head.
