Lots of free acoustic music lessons!
June 29, 2007 9:51 AM   Subscribe

MusicMoose wants "to provide the world with free, useful music lessons, and a community based site to help back it all up." The site contains hundreds of free video music lessons (often containing notation and/or tablature) with a distinct focus on acoustic and bluegrass music, all taught by some pretty badass pickers (including the astonishingly good mandolin shredder Anthony Hannigan). There are also obligatory but very useful forums. Takeaway: the whole thing is free and you don't have to register to watch the lessons.

This does nothing for my crusade for castanets mastery. NOTHING.

Though it certainly is going to elminate almost all of the hindrances in my banjo progress. A bajillion thanks.

No concertina lessons, either. I am appalled.

What's great about this for me now is that the mandolin lessons (I'm a very green and untalented mandolin player) track my own private lessons, so I can try and play along with the frustratingly long-fingered Hannigan while he flies through the tunes I'm learning right now, which is super, super helpful.

Mary demonstrates her castanets.

HAPPY NOW? ;)

My crumhorn gathers dust in the corner mocking me with its silence.

Thanks ... now I'm off to ebay to find a used banjo.

Cool. But no bass guitar? Pity...

No old-time banjo, so nothing to see here ...
