Is it normal to have trouble learning by ear?
Hello, I don’t want to annoy anyone (sorry Gonzo and any others I’ve annoyed), but I need to ask this question because it’s making me worry slightly. I have been trying to learn by ear for the longest time, and have successfully done so with certain phrases of tunes and every once in awhile I figure it out instantly. That being said, there are just certain parts of tunes that I can’t get. No matter how hard I try and focus on the part it goes completely over my head and I have to resort to looking at the settings on this site. Is this a huge problem, or will this sort itself out with time and practice?
