I have been working on learning a song by ear. Normally, I would look for tabs, but the band is relatively minor and no tabs available. When I tried to learn songs before by ear, I always felt like I was stabbing in the dark and just randomly going for notes until it “sounded” right. This time, it seemed so much easier. I found the root and then was like–oh, thats just a triad; oh, the chorus is just ascending 4ths up the major scale. Oh, the bridge just modulates down a half step. And it only took like an hour or so to get most of it.
Seems silly, but I am incredibly proud I was able to figure something out on my own in such a short time. Feel like I am actually making progress musically. Hope to post a cover soon.
