It IS possible! Developing your ear is a skill that takes time to learn, but because it’s a skill that means you CAN learn it.
I have been working on it for pretty much my whole life, and in that time I’ve picked up a few tips that can make the process faster and easier.
We’re going to use the song “Photograph” by Ed Sheeran as our example song today. I don’t have the music, I don’t have a chord chart. I just have my ear.
So let’s go!
Here are all the tips with the relevant timecodes:
– Tip #1 – Figure out what key the song is in – 0:21
– Tip #2 – Figure out the chord progression – 2:01
– Tip #3 – Be patient – 3:30
– Tip #4 – If you won’t want to sing – 4:08
Knowing how to play chords (and some popular chord progression) will make a HUGE difference with this skill. You can learn all about them for FREE with our Chord Hacks series:
