The fastest way to learn how to play a particular musical instrument is attending tutoring lessons conducted by a skilled teacher. Though every instrument is different, the basics of learning are the same. Also, get professional recordings of your instrument and listen to them on a regular basis. Lastly, practice on a daily basis if possible to improve on your skills.
it matters what instrument i learned how to play a lot of instruments by just listening to them be more specific. if its drums just go on you tube and watch people play drums (doesnt matter what song) and find out what the drums sounds like and you will be able to figure out a lot of stuff. if its any type of guitar (including bass its the same thing) just learn how to read tabs and it will come to you slowly my friend got a guitar and taught himself a lot of stuff by learning how to read tabs. or you could just take lessons either works lessons would be easier though.
Do the song that you are doing over and over again, you will finally memorize it and make it sound much better then just doing a note and then blank and then another note. Hope this helped a lot! Ps. I take guitar so I know this works!
