For someone who has been playing guitar for over 50 years I am not a natural musician. When I learn a piece I have to keep playing it or I lose it. I can't always hear a tune in my head, hence the reason I prefer to play with other musicians, even if it is just backing tracks.
My question is, how do I go about learning complex chord progressions? At the moment I am working on learning Doolin Dalton, by The Eagles, which though it has some repeating pattern, confuses things by using a Major chord one time and a Minor another. It also mixes and matches parts of the patterns. I always know when to change chord, just not always where I an going. I can play the piece no bother, with the music or chord sheet in front of me, but quickly get lost without a guide.
How do you guys recommend I go about learning this piece? I am using genuine Eagles sheet music, not something I downloaded off the internet.https://youtube.com/watch?v=pVSBqCuco1s
