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: comprehensive lessons, a wide array of interviews, interactive tablature and video players, a forum, 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.
