Seeking Keyboard Advice

So, recently I gained access to my dad?s old band equipment which included his vintage Hammond B3 Organ as well as a Leslie 122RV and a Yamaha Synthesizer. I have absolutely no prior piano experience but have begun learning scales and chords via Youtube in hopes of gaining some knowledge. Are there any sputters with some good background in piano/keyboard skills that could give me some advice? Mainly what I?m asking is, what kinds of things should I focus on in order to better myself? Below are the kinds of styles I?d like to learn proficiently.

The top 3 are my idols in the realm of organ/keyboard skills in no particular order. Rick Wakeman
2Deep Purple
Machine Head

Jon Lord

Greg Rollie

Jazz piano is something i've always wanted to dabble and experiment with. (BTW, this leaked. Everyone should check it cause it rules.)
The Bones of What You Believe

I'd like to learn a bunch of songs from this album because the music is so catchy and fun and I think it'd be great jump off point into some more complicated stuff.
6The Dear Hunter

Once i'm good enough to start writing, i'd probably draw heavy inspiration from Casey Crescenzo and K Sera.

Never fooled around much with Abelton Live, but I think it'd be cool to try my hand at it sometime. The Yamaha has the ability to record so I could possibly do some sampling as well as experiment with stuff that's already out there.

Ravedeath 1972

The synth does ambient sounds as well and I definitely want to try and create some soundscapes of my own in the vein of Tim Hecker.
9Nils Frahm

And someday, with enough practice, hopefully become a neoclassical God.
Disraeli Gears

On an unrelated note, I?ve started fooling around on my Thunderbird bass again and was wondering if some of the bassists of sputnik had any advice on how to improve there as well. I know how to keep a groove and have learned lots of early Metallica songs. What are the best sites to go to for tabs/scales/general overall improvement?
