    I googled a bit but all I found was somewhat ... crap >_> so I was thinking maybe any of you know a site you mightve used or know is a good one when you're absolutely not familiar with reading notes, playing a musical instrument (besides Guitar Hero).

    Thanks much!

    Tablature is a good way to start learning because its free and you need no knowledge of musical notation at all.

    And lessons + columns.
    Tons of info there. Or you could... "borrow" dvds with beginner guitar lessons.

    yea ultimate-guitar is the best, IF you want to just learn tab.

    just so you know, there are some a lot of standard musical rules you NEED to know even if not learning the full "real" system of music.

    edit: also, I have several years piano experience before even started playing bass, but theres a free online ebook I used to help with bass, called Rock Bass: Beginner to Pro in 4 Weeks. While it may be made for bass players it works for guitarists and bassists of any genre (although DON'T use it alone - get some other material as well).

    another good site is

    a good site for tuning of guitars and basses.

    I suggest you start to learn the bass, it is a great instrument, and is a challenge to learn.
    This site is great for beginners.
    How to play bass

    Also if you have not got a tuner the site includes a free bass tuner

    Hope these sites help you as much as they have helped me.
