Cracking the Code Help Center

Cracking the Code is a growing and vibrant community of musicians like yourself. It’s also a ton of stuff to watch and study: a wide array of interviews and lessons, thousands of musical examples, detailed technical references on playing technique, live broadcasts and help sessions, and more.

We put together this quick introduction to our platform to acquaint you with where everything lives, and how it works. You’ll learn where to find our lessons and interviews, how to operate the most important features of our video and tablature players, how to navigate the forum, how to get to your account settings, and more.
