    Know the theory

    U have to know the basics of chord theory...u hv to know which chord is composed of which notes...(e.g. the major chords are formed by the 1st, the 3rd and the 5th notes of the major scale)...after u practise for a while, then u'll start remembering these. Now go for the song. Identify which notes are being played at what times (specially at the beats) and select the most appropriate chord that contains that note.

    A few general rules -

    1. If a song contains only notes from the major scale (the "shudh swar" s) then it can be played by three basic chords - the chords having the roots at the 1st, 4th and 5th notes of that scale. E.g. If the scale is D major, then the chords followed will be D,G,A.
    2. Sometimes a major chord can be replaced by an equivalent minor (a minor chord which sounds almost the same). Examples of equivalent majors and minors - D/Bm, E/C#m, G/Em and so on

    Try to learn the theory'll help u learn the chords faster.

    who says u dont play sa re ga ma in lead?every lead or tune is made of some combinations of the sargam (sa re ga ma...).because there are only those 12 notes in music.not more than that.these notes r the root of any,u must learn the sargams of different notes.try to play them effeciently.practicing this makes ur hand smoother and faster on the fretbored which is essential for playing lead.

    If you don't learn scales, how ud u play??? Firstly, u need to learn it to quickly find out which chords will be used and which one not to be used. Secondly, if u don't learn scales, u wouldn't be able to play solo coz u don't know what scale(s) to play....The Sa re Ga Ma u r talkin' bout is C D E F G A B in western notation and that's also in a scale... It's C Maj. scale.... Click the link i gave and read the theory...u will feel better ;)

    well,i can't tell u how to create a tune with some certain scale.the tune comes from ur feelings but it is always based on the scale of the chords that is accompanying the tune.i can give u a little exarcise if u can do:

    take 2 chords.say Cmaj and select any rhythm(say, country rhythm. 4 bit).and now start struming the chords in a slow rhythm......Cmaj----Amin----Cmaj----Amin.....and keep playing for sometimes.record this in computer or in a tape play that tape and while u r listening the chord cycle,try to create a tune that matches to that Cmaj-Am chord circle...u'll see that,what ever tune u make,if it matches to that chord cycle,it'll always be within the notes of Cmaj and Amin.
