The Relationship Between “do re mi” and note letter names?

When the people sing the song, we use do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, si, ect, but some time I hear that the music people say A, B, C, C flat, ect.
Is their relationship or are they two different things?
Do-re-mi-etc. is "sol-fa" or "solfege".
Sol-fa represents a major scale, with Doh being the first note, Re being the second, and so on. I'm sure you can sing that scale.

How to know what Key a song is in on Guitar

How To Know Which Key A Song Is In
I remember sitting up nights reading a lot of material trying to learn how to read a song, and find out which key a song is in, so that I might easily know which notes to base a solo on. But I haven't found any good guides that sums it all up, just some guides that seem to include some of the material. This is for beginners, to get a grasp of the subject. So I thought I would write a lesson just for getting the basics down. I am a beginner myself(played guitar for just over a year now, and banjo for 2 months) and love playing guitar so this has become a passion for me. Anyways, let's get down to business, shall we? Let us see, let's take a song called "Me and Bobby McGee." The version I play uses the chords G, C andD. Therefore, this song is in G. Now, why is the song in G? Well let me tell you how I knew that, because it had G, C and D in it. Let me write down a chart:
key  1   2  3  4  5  6   7     
C    C  Dm  Em F  G  Am  B-dim 
D    D  Em F#m G  A  Bm  C#-dim
E    E F#m G#m A  B  C#m D#-dim
F    F  Gm  Am Bb C  Dm  E-dim 
G    G  Am  Bm C  D  Em  F#-dim
A    A  Bm C#m D  E  F#m G#-dim
B    B C#m D#m E  F# G#m A#-dim

In find the post interesting, so i bring it here! 

Now what can we see here? Well for startes, 1, 4and 5 are ALWAYS Major chords (G, C, F# etc). 2, 3and 6 are always minors (Dm, Am, C#m etc) and 7s are diminished chords, even though sometimes used as a major in certain songs. So, we have "Me and Bobby McGee," a song which as a G major, C major and D major chords in it. Look down the chart, which songs have G, C and D majorin it? Ah, G has those three chords. Therefore "Me and Bobby McGee" is in G. Lets take another nice country song while we're at it:

Tips for better Singing!

Singing Tips!
Drink plenty of water.
Pour your emotions into the song and use facial expressions while you sing.

Pick a song suitable for your vocal range. (With notes you feel more comfortable singing.)

Mistakes to avoid while singing!

Make sure to rest your voice and give it plenty of liquids, particularly water.

Some common mistakes to avoid are smiling while singing, under singing, over singing, pushing out too much air, and pushing beyond one's natural range. These are common causes of damage of the vocal folds. Be cautioned of these.

Note that if you feel any type if physical strain or especially to the extent of pain, stop practicing. This may be due to practicing these techniques in an incorrect fashion.
Seek to speak with a vocal trainer, choral director, or a specialist of the vocal folds. They will be able to show you what is being done incorrectly, and offer insight for self-improvement.

Be careful not to strain your voice!!!

How to find songs key on Guitar

Being able to find out what key a song is in is a very good skill to have as a guitar player. There are a few things that you can work on to start being able to find out what key a song is in. Knowing what major scales sound like and being familiar with what chords are in a given key are two things that can really make finding out what key a song is in easier. This lesson will focus on songs that are in major keys only.

The first thing that you need to be able to do is to pick out the root note of the key of the song that you are trying to learn. When we are talking about the root note of a key we are just referring to the first scale degree or the tonic of the key. For example, the root of a G major scale would be a G note. If you are practicing the major scale on a regular basis and getting that sound in your head, it will be easier for you to focus in on which note is the root of a particular key. When you get used to listening for the root, or tonic, of a scale, your ear will be drawn to that note when you start to hunt around for notes on the fret board for possible keys.
