As a semi-beginner guitar player, tabbing music seems VERY difficult, and it seems like the kind of thing that you need to have an ear for. Is it possible to eventually learn to tab music?

Like I know alot of songs that I would like tabs for but I can never find them and I would really like to be able to say that I actually tabbed the song myself, instead of just memorizing some numbers I found on the internet. I mean if I could write my own songs that would be even better but that's something that seems even more impossible to me.

How do people usually tab songs? Do they just hear the note in the song and find it on the guitar and do that for every note? And how could that even be possible in some songs with other instruments playing like an organ or keyboard, or a second guitar. It just seems all in all like a very difficult thing to do.

I usually play about 5 seconds and screw around on guitar until I get it. Only thing I've ever actually done well is the main riff to Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
takes a while for me.

I feel the same man....as a beginner I would personally listen to a song I don't know the notes to....and then try to sound it out on the guitar, then once I have the notes, I would find a tab and see if my notes were close to what it actually is.

All it really takes is practice man. My teacher has been playing 25+ years and he can tab stuff out at the drop of a hat. The more you do it the more you'll recognize sounds and connect them to the notes on the fretboard.

Yeah, I have fond memories as a child of fapping to a porno with my close friends before sitting down for a nice relaxing evening of Runescape.

it is something that takes having an ear BUT...if you learn some basic piano skills and with more scales and chords that you know...it does become a lot easier because music is written (most of the time) very sensibly....by learning some piano you'll have a better ear for melody. least for me that was the truth...

Just play a lot and you'll start to know really well the differences in notes and chords. You might not be able to pick them out straight away but you'll hear if you're too high or too low and then adjust.

Plays lots of barre chords and the open chords and learn a few scales and it will make everything a lot easier because you'll hear what works well together.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
