She Fell In Love With The Drummer

Rock on Zakk Wylde. When I learned to play the guitar, there was one online resource - the OLGA. Today, professional and aspiring musicans will find lots of instructional resources on the internet.

The Berklee School of Music tops the list with their quality "Berklee Shares" website. Many instructional pdfs, mp3s, and Quicktime files navigable by topic and instrument.

Guitar players have hundreds of sites to explore. e-Chords is my favorite site, full of instructional videos, lessons, and tabs. Some other good ones: iPlayMusic, Guitar Principles, Free Guitar Videos, Visual Guitar (chords and theory), Wholenote, Cyberfret, iBreatheMusic, Essential Guitar and Guitar Lesson World. Also see Mr. Fasterfinger's fun flash intro and "the Exploding Guitar" (pictured), although the lessons won't load for me.

Bass players will also find a lot of information on these guitar sites, but should also check out Wheat's Bass Book.

Violin Master Class is a nicely designed site for players of many levels. Quicktime videos help to illustrate proper technique and angles.

Modern Drummer has PDF tutorials on fills, grooves, and hands. The site also contains many audio samples and interesting articles.
