Sites to learn to play music

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about some websites where one could fin courses on music. This were formal education courses. Now I bring some sites that are more "practical" since they are aimed at learning some of the fundamentals of music and at learning how to play an instrument. One of them may suit your needs. I´ve been learning to play the guitar for some time now and I have used this webs to get some valuable exercises and advices.
There are a lot more and I will post some of them later on. In this ocassion I leave you this ones:

There are hundreds of websites to learn guitar, but most tend to be paid or to have just a few lessons for free. This site has a terrible design, because it is very old, but offers a free comprehensive course that progresses from the basics to advanced techniques. It will be very useful and you can supplement it with free video tutorials that offer sites like Ultimate Guitar (excellent tablature source) and Guitar Trice.

Study Bass
Wanting to learn to play the bass on the Internet can be more severe than the sound of the instrument. However, this site has everything you need: step by step lessons are complemented by audio and video, interactive instructions, questions and answers to test acquired knowledge and song samples to analyze and exercise. There are also some very lanyards online tools, such as a printer scales and patterns, and a metronome.

Walt Ribeiro
Ribeiro is a 27 years old guitarist and music composer, with jazz and classical formation, who won fame online as the Internet music teacher, giving daily lessons for free via the internet. His YouTube channel has more than 15,000 subscribers and has over 5 million views. But the key is to go to his personal site, where their video tutorials are organized according to an order, from what is a note and a chord or how to read music to recording tricks, tips to know what instrument you should learn or how to squeeze the sound of your guitar. The guy seems to be accelerated by 10 liters of Red Bull but the clips are very useful and fun. You can notice that he really puts effort and passion into this.

    Also there's an ebook of Music Theory For Dummies floating around the web, that's definitely worth checking out.

    Just about to check out all your links, thanks!

  6. Thanks! I already play the piano a little, but this should be helpful for others. :]

  7. I agree with cheshire. I think I couldn't master any instrument even if I tried and I'm too lazy.

  8. wow thx i was looking for something like this

  9. Thanks for this helpful info keep up the great posts.

  10. Thanks, learning to play the guitar now, these sites help

  11. cool! i recommend ultimate-guitar.com! you'll find a huge database of guitar tabs there!

  12. Teaching yourself to play guitar can be hard without help like the sites you list.
    Even with formal lessons as a kid, I couldn't get it. Too "Musically Challenged"! I recently discovered the bowed psaltery. If you like folk or celtic music, this is an alternative for someone who can't play the guitar well.
