What I do (after listening to the song a few thousand times) is play through with the song and try to pick up the root notes. Once I know where the roots are it makes it much easier to figure out the inbetween notes because of the rules that scales follow. Your instructor will help you with this. What I did at 2 months was try to learn some "simpler" songs. My first was Golden Earring's Radar Love, followed up with the 1st half of U2's Achtung Baby. Next I moved onto The Police. All this stuff can be pretty simple technically but should help you develop feel and groove. I know I was psyched to be able to play along with songs for the first time! Don't give up! It's very daunting at first but you'll get a little better every time you try.
