The main thing is the tonic chord. First you figure that out. Then you figure out whether it's minor or major. If the tonic is A and it's a major chord, you are in the key of A major.

How you learn songs doesn't really matter. The question is if you need tabs to figure out songs, and can't do it without them. There's nothing wrong with using tabs or notation or whatever.
