    Hey all,
    I have been learnin guitar for 4 months now. If I know the chords & tab notations of song, I can easilly play it. BUt I m stuck at how to find chords & notes just by listenin the song. MY sir says u will do it by practise..
    I have tried a lot, I can easily recognise the tunes & repeat vocally, but when it comes to guitar I give up.
    I guess I just dont understand the basics of music. WHAT TO DO?

    Hey dont give up ... always keep try for your best......
    it is very easy to find the cord of any song.
    ur teacher is very correct tht u will get it after practice and experience
    i have my own style to find the cords. you will have to just follow the steps...
    Step 1- find the notation of the song
    Step 2-Find it correct
    Step 3- for example the notation is starting from E then play all possible cord near by.
    Step 4- once you get the cord then play the relative cords according to the song.

    Have fun and keep tune in...

    @rachita, for thoda sa pyaar hua hai, try C Dm. Thats what I could figure out in 5 mins and my useless memory of tone.

    Step 3 should be, try to figure out the scale, is it a major or a minor scale, because after this step you'll be able to figure out the right chords.
    About how to know whether its a major or a minor scale, there are lots of ideas and theories, in my opinion its just a matter of listening and this you'll get after lots and lots of ear training and ofcourse, practise, practise and practise!!!!

    ^yes dats wht i've heard frm most players....
    minor chords r mostly sad
    also i've seen many songs contain these chords in a group and in different orders of course:
    G, C, D, A or
    F, C, Am, G, Dm
    there r many such groups/......try finding 1 chord tht matches the most n others by relative corrections and tone changes......easier said than done actually.....i've failed several times bfore finally giving up
