Ive always had a problem with chords. Single notes and solos are somewhat manageable for me, but most times chords in songs just sound blurry in my head. At times i can make up the bass note, but alot of the times i cannot assign to them any sound from my guitar.

I try listening to songs over and over and i just do it. What am i not doing right?

Start with more simple songs. Maybe learn some theory (especially about the chord functions). Learn to recognize the most common progressions (like I-V-vi-IV and stuff like that).
