That question makes no sense?

Notes are just keys. If you press more then one harmonically related notes down at a time it becomes a chord. If your playing a piece, it will tell you what to play.

Do you mean play by ear?

I've never been a fan of playing by ear, it's mostly trial and error, play what you hear untill it sounds correct. You need good pitch for that (being able to hear a note and know what it is).

Alot of people also learn from tutorials that people make on youtube. I think this is a very lazy terrible way of learning that wont get you anywere.

If you cant read notes, why not learn? It is the easiest thing you could ever achieve. Andrew teaches you how to read music back in his Piano lessons. And now (even more convenient for you) he has a new series of Music Theory lessons, which is exactly what you need.

play by ears its for advance people
but for very beginner off course read not its best way
but not easy like it lokks like..even andrew have show how to read note like FACE... all cow eat grass
the hard way is every second we must press the note what shown...
i said that because iam in that prosses too so be patient
the book of BEYER is good for fingering and note reading
if still hard begin from middle C that left or right hand still in potition
autodidact learning likes (online learning) is need more time better take a course
