when playing a full song like this....


C D
So, so you think you can tell

AM
Heaven from Hell

G
Blue Skies from pain

EDIT : THE D SHOULD BE ABOVE TELL.

Listen to the song and you'll know.

i think when the singer reaches the marker in the lyrics, like when he sings tell you change to D
#4
I Have it on but ive not been playing long enough to tell when he changes by ear. its kinda hard when ive just started learning more and more stuff.

listen to the song

wish you were here - pink floyd

and you'll realise when to change.

Yer when the lyrics get to the point with the chord above them, for example the D above tell, you change to that chord, so you'd play C till it says tell, then play D until heaven, when you'd play Am etc...

if listening to the song doesnt help, try touching a sensitive part of you bady against the speakers and you will be able to feel the chords change.

You will need to change chord when you come to the lyric in the song that chord name is over. i.e. from your example you strum a C chord once then play a D chord until the vocalist gets to the lyric Heaven.

When the vocalist sings Heaven you would strum a Am chord and when the vocalist sings Blue you would strum a G Chord.

Before picking up the guitar, listen to the song and see if you can reckonise when the chord changes happen using your tab. Then play along to the song before attempting it by your self. This really helps to get the rythum right and know when the chords are gonna change.

Hope that helps. Good luck.

it doesnt really matter how much of a beginner you are.. you should be able to tell when the chords change

i'll give up then shall i ?

its hard to hear when you have drums and a big loud ass keyboard going off at the same time.

i can tell when chords change by ear.. but not this song.

well you could always go to the fifth fret on the low E string because apperantly its the same as open on the A string. Theres something I bet you didnt know
