i have a question on this its similar. I know how to play chords, but i dont know how to match them by ear. What i mean is like Am -> C -> Em...by my (newb) ear they match... But which chord like that Matches with F or Bm..

you mean like making progressions?
well sir you are off to a long discovery into music theory and key signatures
so if we are in F major there is one flat and it is Bb so the chords would be
F-gmin-amin-Bbmaj-Cmaj-dmin-Edim-F

The chords that selkies indicated are a basic progression for Fmaj. Just follow the notes and the pattern:

F  G   A  Bb  C  D  E
I ii  iii IV  V vi vii*


That's the pattern for a major key. All the uppercase letters indicate the chord is major while lower case is minor. The chord with the * is a min7b5 or a diminished chord. So you get the chords F Gm Am Bb C Dm Edim. For a minor key (I'll use D minor to keep it simple) it becomes:

D  E   F  G  A Bb  C
i ii* III iv v VI VII


Just follow those patterns for now and once you get used to those and you learn more theory, you'll have a pretty good knowledge of what will and will not sound good and you can start adding 7th chords, sus chords, add9, add11, 13, etc.

Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.
