I just started guitar a little while ago and I'm frikin tone deaf. I can't tell one note from the other. They all kinda sound the same to me. I remember from somewhere that a guy said to turn the distortion up really loud and just listen to it so I guess ill try that. But do you have any other ways or methods of helping me get better at differentiating tones? thanks

Not to be a **** or anything, but if that's true why do you play an instrument.


Ps: Distortion won't help with anything but pinch harmonics.

Dude, if you already have the capo just put it behind the nut and it lowers everything.

Just keep playing the guitar alot mate. You should get used to being able to hear the differences in notes. It's not easy training your ear at the best of times, just stick with it.

Start playing drums instead?

Seriously though, there are lots of (free) programs out there to help with ear training.
It helped for me. I used to tune my strings by ear and I tuned them 1 octave too high, now I'm pretty close.

Just stick with it and continue to play.

Most guitarists don't have natural perfect pitch or actively train their hearing, they just play a lot and try to figure out songs without tabs.
