    A simple mantra - Concentrate & Don't give up. It may take quite some time but simply don't give up.

    I'll get you started. Pluck a note anywhere on your guitar, listen to the song and try to get whether the next note will be higher than the plucked note or lower than the plucked note. If you get that bit, you need to figure how much higher or lower, once you get then go for the subsequent note.

    After identifying several notes successfully, you have the TAB of the song in front of you.

    Good Luck and happy tabbing.

    BTW it was hard to decipher your post. Please use proper English.

    Listen to the song carfully and try to play along
    I would use barre chords instead of open
    Easy to get the right pitch that way

    Also u can try to play the melody to the song and figure out the key of the song
    that way u can narrow down chord options

    listen carefully and practice ur scales very well. so that u may identify the note instantly. but u can also use hit and trial method in the beginning on the scales just practice that's it
