start learning songs by ear? I mean it's gonna take some time, but it's more rewarding right?
Gear:
2011 Fender American Standard Stratocaster
2012 Tanglewood TW170

Boss Katana 100w 1x112

yes.

I wish I had time to do it.

The biggest advantage is being able to play songs that decent tabs don't exist for.

Why not? The only song i ever successfully learned to play by ear is the guitar part from Duelling Banjos lol.

Of course, I try to do it as much as I can, it can get frustrating but it helps train your musical ear I think.

i wish i could learn....but i have the worst pitch recognition ever. i wouldn't be able to tell you what note my bassoon or guitar is playing if i weren't playing it, and I play those two all the time.

I'm the same.. I was lucky when I was in band in school when the teacher made us do the note recognition parts... because he played trombone and so did I so I just mimicked him haha.

It does take time, but i don't use tabs anymore. It makes freestyle jamming so much easier, and kinda helps you understand how the song was composed, furthering your own song writing. Start with easy stuff, asnd you'll notice patterns in songwriting, then you realise that quite alot of music is fairly cliche.
