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.

Show, seven year-old mandolin prodigy Ricky Skaggs
performs two songs with Flatt
and "Foggy Mountain Special"
