Re: Learn Guitar By Ear

Dear Friend,

There are many different routes to go if you want to learn how to play the guitar. For example, you can take private lessons from a certified teacher. You can also teach yourself—from a book, an instructional video, or a website. No matter how you learn how to play the guitar, you will eventually come to a point when you will want to learn how to play a song that you are familiar with. Maybe you want to learn how to play your favorite song from your favorite CD by your favorite band. Or maybe, you heard a song on the radio that you want to learn how to play. What about your favorite television theme song? Whatever song it is, one way to learn it is to purchase the sheet music and learn how to play it from reading the sheet music. But another, more advanced way to learn the song you want is to learn guitar by ear. If you learn guitar by ear, you can pick up virtually any song you want—just by listening to the CD. This will become a useful skill, especially if you want to have a career in a music-related field. Follow these steps if you want to learn guitar by ear.
