Another music industry list from Tresbear Music

This post focuses on websites that provide information, forums, and/or interactive communities for both specific musical instruments and genres of musical instruments. The topics discussed (e.g., threads) on these musical acoustic instrumentsinstrument forums range from issues specific to particular instruments to general music issues, from beginner level all the way up to the highly esoteric.

On occasion, one may find well-known musicians dispensing valuable advice and wisdom to relative beginners — always interesting.

In our experience, both the Guitar Hangout and Mandolin Cafe have provided a wealth of relevant information.

A warning to the uninitiated: you can get what is known as Acquisition Syndrome related to a particular instrument from hearing and seeing pictures of wonderful instruments. There is GAS (Guitar Acquisition Syndrome), MAS (Mandolin), BAS (Banjo) and on and on. All can result in a dramatic sudden loss of financial resources. More importantly, you can often avoid making beginner (newbie or “noob”) mistakes by learning from the experiences of the fellowship.

Like our other lists, this list is ordered alphabetically and not by preference.
