try this.

tune to drop D,

fret strings 4,5 and 6 all at the 7th fret.

play in this order : 6545

then fret the same three strings, all at the 3rd fret this time,

and play in this order: 6545

finally - play open on same strings - 6_4545

tell me what that sounds like, if it makes sense at all.

"_" means slight pause

if you get it, and want to know the rest, say the title, and I'll show what I know.

Sounds pretty sweet i think i got the right pace....would sound pretty sweet with a nice second guitar in the background but not to much going on..

that would be heart shaped box.

the rest of the beginning is also pretty easy.

after the first part, fret 7 for 4, 5 and 6,

same as before, pattern is 6545

then fret three for the strings 4, 5, and 6, pattern is 6545.

then, its going to be

string 6 open,
string 4, fret 4 (x4)
string 5, fret 3 (x2)
string 5, fret 5

yeah, I know of that site (and not only because I'm Russian) but because thats where I go sometimes, but with HSB, I just sat in my room, with knowing only one thing - it was in Drop D.

if you want a good place to start learning rock by ear, try out some AC/DC songs.

that's why it's a good place to start. Knowing a lot of them will help you figure out the ones you don't know.

most of the songs i learn i learn by ear
(im not trying to brag, just being serious)
its more rewarding to figure it out by yourself
not to mention a lot of music i listen to isn't popular enough to have tabs written for it :)

usually when I learn something by ear, I tend to swear like a sailor.

i don't really swear much in other times, except when I'm angry..

right. knowing how to play one AC/DC song will familiarize your brain with how certain intervals and progressions sound. When you try to learn a song of theirs you don't know already, you might recognize a little piece that's very similar to a song you do know, and that is at least a reference point to start at.

It's like vocabulary. once you understand a word, you can use it in other places properly, and understand other people when they use it.
