    excellent! In modern music it helps me to identify the key first...I do this by playing a single note first. If you can play it through pretty much the whole song, it's a good indication of the key. Then I listen for the chord progressions. I, IV, V etc. If you are used to hearing what it sounds like when you swith from a 5th to a 6th or 7th etc. it is easier to pick out the melody. Does that make sense to you? If not I will try to explain better...
