There are like, four million websites out there for music lessons. And although I can write some tutorials for you, I really can't compete with the collective knowledge of the internet on this stuff.
Rather than trying to write a buttload of lessons for Drums, Guitar, and Bass, I'm going to point you in the right direction.
Being incredibly fast at the guitar will probably not make you famous in the music industry.
Now, stop for about 25 seconds, and think about that (if you actually want to learn something).
Technical skill at your instrument is not the be all end all. You can be incredibly good at music, and know all your theory, but it won't bring you anywhere special. You might have a little bit of success, and you'll certainly impress a few girls, but that's about as far as you'll get.
It's creativity that gets you places.
If you aren't already in the mindset of accepting creativity as the be-all-end-all, then you will probably need to meditate on that for a bit. Getting this mindset correct will make or break your entire music career.
Creativity is what matters. Creativity is what made "The Wall" such an amazing album, and it's what made "The Weeknd" such an incredible success.
Creativity is what got Frank Ocean's "Channel Orange" critical acclaim, and no amount of guitar tone or shredding drum solos could have surrogated the creativity that created his success.
And that's what creativity is. It's creating new things.
If you suck eggholes, how on earth are you supposed to put into practice your creative ideas?
Technical skills allow you to carry out the creative ideas that you create. It's what allows you to noodle around on the bass and come up with an incredible riff like on "Bombtrack" by RATM.
It can often be hard to even come up with ideas if you can't play your instrument well. Creativity and Technical Skill go hand in hand; they collaborate together.
But always remember, your technical skill is simply a bridge to allow creativity to pass. Creativity is the center of your art, so don't ever forget that. Never put the technical skill first, creativity always comes first.
Of course, sometimes guitar solos just sound rippin. Use them appropriately.
When you learn a new instrument, there is an unsettling desire to learn it the right way. This is also known as "where do I start?"
Start at the top.
You'll find that all these lessons are organized in a chronological manner (from beginner - expert). If you take a look at the top of the list, and find that you don't know that skill, then start there. That's where your learning journey starts.
I'm consistently adding to the following directory new lessons that you can learn.
I'm a big fan of efficiency, so if you find that you already know a skill, then skip that lesson and move on to the next one.
If you find a lesson that seems super interesting to you, don't be afraid to try it out (even if it seems harder than you can handle). You might not be able to complete the lesson, but there's nothing wrong with failing.
When you fail, it simply creates a new opportunity for you to push yourself harder. Although we are conditioned to think failure is bad, it really really isn't.
Failing to complete a lesson will not kill you, or harm you in any physical way.
In fact, even if you fail a lesson, you'll knowledge will still have increased, and you'll have a really good idea about how much better you need to be in order to complete that lesson.
So don't be afraid to fail.

Extended Range Guitars 1: Introduction To The 7 and 8 String Guitars
The guitar is a multifaceted instrument, one of the few that is incorporated into many genres of music in this day and age. I was always attracted …
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
