How does one find chord progressions of the track?
I'm trying to find the sequence to:
melody starts at 3:26 min.
All I could fine :
Key of song is E minor,
bass root notes : E A C D
Thanks in advance

Since you know the melody and the bass notes, I think your best bet is to infer the chords from those two voices. At minimum, given a bass note and the melody that goes with it, you should be able to figure out by ear, or with a little experimentation, whether the basic harmony is major or minor.
Assuming as a starting point that each chord is a basic major or minor triad, then once you know the chord quality, there are at most three possibilities to try: one where the bass note is the root of the chord, one where the bass note is the third of the chord, and one where the bass note is the fifth.
Given the repetitive nature of the song, and the small number of bass note/harmony changes, this sort of brute force search shouldn't be too bad.
If you have no ear training to recognize the chord progression of a simple song you must play and listen to even more elementary chord progressions. This basics will be the elements and modules with which you will build other songs, your own progressions and identify the chords of any song.
Look up for songs typing just some roman numbers like “I vi IV V songs”. Listen to these songs until this progression this schema becomes a utility for recognition of similar songs.
You’ll also find other patterns in this SE site looking for chords and chord progression.
This is not the pattern of your song: I vi IV V
but it may show how you can train your chord progression recognizing skills.
