You play the first note and then keep repeating that with the rest of the line. With a guitar, you play the most important notes, and then slowly move onto easier ones. (Yes, there’s a point when you have to stop.)
Now imagine, on a computer screen, five notes you’re trying to remember. If you start with the easiest note and then make the most difficult one more difficult, your brain will get the idea and keep trying to play with it. So it’s a much faster, more efficient way of memorizing.
To sum things up, we remember more when we make a sequence of smaller and easier parts, and we can make more progress when we start with the harder parts.
