To ask a question you need to know what you don’t understand, asking the question isn’t the hard part, knowing what you don’t know is.

So where should you start in understanding music?

Well you start from the beginning, a song is made up of chords and in most cases lyrics, so the best place to begin is understanding each of these elements.
