    I've heard that learning complete songs is a good way to improve; learning by using your ear instead of tab is also considered good. However, the songs I want to learn are often quite hard to figure out by ear (maybe they're too fast for me). Does anyone have suggestions of good songs to learn?

    What would really help is a list of a few blues and/or pop songs, ordered from easier to harder, so you can start on the lower end and work your way up.

    Can you distinguish single note intervals and their qualities (major, minor, etc.)? That might be where I'd begin if you can't.

    Also, check justinguitar.com, he has some of what you're looking for.
