Just keep learning and practicing. You'll get there.
One great way is by delving into an understanding of basic theory, even if it's only simple theory.
Once you understand how to construct chords via scale degrees, and how they relate to eachother, you can make a vision become reality because you have the basic idea of what notes you need to play to make it happen.

There are various aural training programs out there for ear training (try googling for them), or you can find a music teacher who can specifically help you learn how to recognise pitches, rhythms, intervals etc.

Don't try to just play the same note over and over again in hopes of memorizing, instead there are a bunch of little tricks to recognise intervals (e.g. a I to IV perfect interval you can remember by singing the first 2 notes of "amazing grace" inside your head). This kind of stuff you can learn off reading books on aural or learning from a teacher.

Hope that helped

Follow the suggestions already stated- make sure you get a good grip on forming chords. Then start fooling around with dissonant notes and learning how to resolve them, this is what you're looking for.
What do you guys listen to when playing video games?

Sorry, didn't realize I was that loud.

I'll be leaving your closet now.
