There's a lot of good stuff out there and a bit of crap. I subscribe to a few really good channels (IMHO). Any of these on your list?

  1. Andertons
  2. intheblues
  3. Phillip McKnight
  4. The Tone King
  5. Darrell Braun Guitar
  6. EytschPi42 (this guy has way more money than he should)

I kind of like gearmanndude. I like to hear cords and picking in demo's. When I hear a guy wailing lead riffs.....I skip it. To me, all guitars and amps can be made to sound the same for lead. But...to get a good rhythm tone is tough. Gearmanndude actually plays cords.

Doug and Pat? Ugh.

I like "Knobs" for pedal demos. Not much I actually like when it comes to gear reviews. They're all full of shit most of the time.

Here's a vid. I like that it's thoughtful:

PhilX is fun to watch, and he demonstrates some cool old guitars. I like being entertained while I learn something. Rig run down has its moments, cool access, but the presenters could be better informed.

The ones I check out on a regular basis are gearmanndude since he is always testing pedals I'm interested in. It's a mild bonus that he sounds similar to Jack Black.
Phillip McKinght has some cool things and I enjoy his breakdown on gear.
Pete Thorn is probably my favourite to watch. He could play a xylophone and I'd still watch. He's such a monster on the guitar and he comes across as a pretty cool guy.

Have heard Pete Thorn before, he seems to be one of the most respected YouTubers out there.

Funny you mention Mary Spender. I’ve just started watching some of her independent stuff she does outside of the occasional Andertons vids. She’s a very talented musician without any trace of an ego. She’d be a great person to have a beer with.

You described it perfectly. Check Lari Basilio - quite interested to hear your thoughts about her music.

If you want full list of most channels I subscribe (don't watch everything) let me know and I will create new post with the long list

My wife: "Are you watching Anderton's videos again?
Me: "Yup"

I have to admit they are my favourite YouTube channel.
Yes, Chappers and the Captain often take a while to get to the point, but, they do end up providing useful and interesting information in their videos.

I also like Rabea as a presenter and player on Anderton's and he has his own channel
Rabea Massaad
