    u'll get'em if u start playin' different scales....u get fair idea of here u should search notes on th' fretboard

    even so, u should listen 2 the song n figure out:
    the first note,
    then, whether the next note is higher or lower....then search the next note and so on
    listening to the whole melody at a time will only confuse u...listen to no more than 3 notes at a time....slow down ur playing speed

    It's just a practice thing really. No magic formula.

    first listen to a song and its music and get the hang of it.
    find the notes on the guitar if u dont know them already.
    slowly and i again say very slow pick each note according to the tune of the song.
