I have posted this, previously, on an other guitar forum. I am a rhythm guitarist who has problems learning complicated chord progressions. Although I have been playing guitar for over 50 years I am not a natural musician. I don't always hear a tune in my head, and therefore prefer playing with other musicians or with backing tracks.
Give me a chord sheet and I have no problems. I know when to change chords and I know the chords I need to play, I just have difficulty learning complicated chord patterns that don't just repeat.
How would you guys go about learning a piece so you can play it without having it written down in front of you?
