Resources for newbies?

Are there any resources (preferably on the Internet) that one could recommend to help a newbie learn the ins and outs of recording and mixing music? I plan on recording mainly my own stuff (basically pop/rock or indie rock), but I have very little prior experience, so if there were any sites that have guides or things of the like, I'd be interested in finding out about them! Thanks!!

There's a ton of stuff on YouTube.

Not websites, but two resources I found invaluable when dusting the rust off (both available in ebook format):

1- "Practical Recording Techniques" by Bartlett and Bartlett (new edition is available, haven't seen the new one).

2- "Mixing Secrets" by Mike Senior.

Both pretty in-depth for a beginner, but easy reads. Great "refresher" material if you've been out of this for a while. I've gone back to both a few times since reading through them the 1st time. If nothing else, they can help fill in the down time between projects (I'm not a videogamer, so prefer to read).
