I think there are some softwares around for the ear training but I never used these ones.
If you have a friend and an instrument - a keyboard/piano is perfect - you can start to compare two notes. Your friend plays two notes. The first one is the reference. Then, you have to say if the second note is higher than first, lower or eventually the same.
Obviously you don't see which notes are played.
You can start to work to intervals in the same way, chords and scales.
One of the first steps is to be able to recognize major and minor triads/chords.
This is what I've done many years ago studying Jazz.

This song is in A major key. I've listened the beginning.
Try to use A,D,E chords for the rhythm.

I would also suggest active practicing. Take your fave songs and try to "hear" the melodies, try to play them on your guitar without checking any tabs, you can use them later to check your results.

As we are most guitar players, this is the best ear training, of course biggrin.gif

You must be able to know all the chord positions on the fretboard and actually know how they sound relative to one another. Take a tonic chord for example and learn hwo the rest of the chords sound against it. You can make a simple exercise to do that. I think some concepts from my songwriting lesson can help you with that
