Learning songs from TAB

im used to trying to learn songs by ear but im not that great at acoustic so im trying to learn some acoustic stuff by tab and its a pain in the ass!

any tips or suggestions?

I find learing a tabbed out song is the easiest way to learn a song, try having the song you are trying to play on a cd next to you, so you can hear it then play it or play along with it

I agree, have both in front of you.
