I mainly learn songs by ear, as I personally feel that'll help improve anyone's musical skills tremendously. But I also learn by reading notation.

Tabs are almost always wrong - unless you're getting it from an official book. But it is not a good way to advance the guitar, unless you intend to drop it in the near future. (No offense)

I confess, I'm strictly a tab book reader. I can hardly tell the difference between a trumpet and a french horn, never mind what notes and chords a guitar's playing! :P

i usually try doing it by ear, then if i cant i use guitarpro. i know that almost all tabs are wrong, but the way i see it the people who tabbed it out probably can figure the song out better than i can. and sometimes i ask my guitar teacher to teach it to me if i really wanna learn it

I put other because I use my ear and tabs. First I look up tabs. If they have it on the internet, I'll follow it and make changes from what I think they got wrong. If they don't have it and I really want to learn the song, I'll take it slowly by ear to make sure everything is correct. Then I tab it out on GuitarPro to work on writing rhythms and so I can remember it later.
