    Hi Guys,
    i have just started playing the guitar around 4 months back. i know it might be a bit too soon, but i would like to know if anyone can suggest good ear training exercises...

    cos i want to be able to identify the chords when i hear them... although currently i am able to identify when a chord changes or different sections of a song, am still not able to identify when the chord / tab exactly is...

    Well.. For ear training.. The more you hear what you play the more ear trained you will become.. Just don't put yourself that you should be ear trained.. Just keep an playing songs as much as you can.. The sounds of the chords will become memorised in your brain and when you hear a song you'l be able to say what chord it is.. It just takes time and there are no big shortcuts here.. Just keep playing..

    Id advise you to sing what you play. It helped me a lot when I started.

    I completely agree with u Ashya ... Insurrection, thr's no shortcut for ear training, u should try to play songs all d time ... This way, u'll not just learn d chords, but u'll remember what a chord sounds like and maybe in another song, u'll be able to identify it ... I've been playing for 2 years now and trust me, dis is the way to go about it ... All the best and cheers

    P.S : Try to play along with songs as this will improve your speed greatly and u can do a cover of a song that u like later :)
