    Except Pete Thorn turns the beginning of his videos into productions with songs and shit, and I like Brett because he's just a dude with cool gear in his house playing a pedal or whatever.

    My cousin decided to become a youtuber because he saw some guy roman atwood talk about getting rich on youtube. If you can't imagine something worse than wasting time watching some idiot's pointless videos, imagine someone telling you how the whole thing goes every time you're on the phone. "Roman atwood did this and said that."

    Jesus sometimes it just makes you want to be another suicide statistic...

    You'll only get rich on YouTube if you post bleach memes and act edgy.

    I just don't get it though. I was born in 1983 so I'm a millennial. Why don't I get into all this useless shit like the others?

    Dave Simpson. He’s pretty good. Neurotic British guy that oozes honesty in lo fi videos.

    It's clickbaity, but that's the name of Ben Eller's youtube tutorial series. :lol: Also I think that's the original name of his youtube channel.

    Seems like a nice guy and he's less annoying than Champman so

    Kayzer used to post here, loved his band Time has Come

    S/O to ArnoldPlaysGuitar, dude's playing is pretty good, he's real, and the beer reviews are a nice touch. With my time nowadays, if I watch a guitar/music related video, it tends not to be just some dude playing guitar in his house; prefer informative content or production related stuff.

    Kurt Ballou and Nate Newton's (of Converge fame) DemoVids channel is siiiick - gnarly tone and gear everywhere. Agufish is also pretty cool - he's somewhat of a djent/metalcore kid but he seems like a driven young guy and I believe he has an arrangement with SamAsh to demo lots of gear, so his output is pretty solid.

    35 is considered a millennial age now?

    Every time I see a discussion about guitar-related YouTube channels, it always ends up becoming like this.

    I don't really see the problem with most of these channels to be honest, there has to be a demographic somehow and the SSO crowd isn't one of them. That's just the way how YouTube works.

    Most of these channels feel geared towards younger audiences or djent kids. I’m just not into gimmicks such as 18 string guitars or things bassists/drummers/singers say. I love “Tone Talk” with Dave Friedman. Also the EVH Gear TV channel i enjoy depending on the guest. I enjoy PixxyLixx (now Steve From Boston) gear/guitar reviews.
