I want to learn how to make electronic music. But I need to learn in a way that guides me...very...slowly...and directedly. (Also, as free-of-charge as humanly possible.)

Usually when someone says "I want to learn how to make electronic music" the response is something like, "download X program; knock yourself out!!!" Every time I've tried this it's been really overwhelming! They're very complex. Is there some sort of free online tutorial that will guide me, step by step and concretely, through how to begin making music with some (also preferably free) program? If there's some book I can take out of the library, that's ok too, but I do prefer an online source.
When I say concrete, I mean it literally tells you what to do until you know enough to make your own music. I need this broken down in a way that makes it way less daunting and open-ended.
