It's a cli music-player but easier than any gui one I've ever worked with. Spend 5 minutes reading this tutorial and you'll never use other music-player.

It's the most lightweight music player I have found so far--compared with mplayer, mpv, and the GUI based players. The downside is that it doesn't support https streaming: https://github.com/cmus/cmus/issues/207
