I hear and read alot about how players like Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page learned guitar by listening. I can do it somewhat, but I have a somewhat good understanding of theory. Would they of had some kind of book or something to show them basic things like chords? Because if someone just gave me a guitar and I tried to learn a song I would have no idea where to start, singles notes maybe but not chords. How would they, and even people that did learn guitar then, go about it? Where did they start?

i never had a single lesson. but they do have books on theory and so forth. you should get a book and go over chords and scales and the more you do them you will be able to know what your hearing.
