    There used to be a free dave weiner youtube riff of the week that helped my playing a lot. But it's no free anymore. Are there any other good youtube channels?

    Check out Ben Ellers YouTube channel

    Aside from the Lick of the Week which is great Edutainment, the "This is why you suck at guitar" series of lessons are very useful

    Definitely agree with the Ben Eller suggestion. Another one I've been watching is Ben Levin's channel. There is a lot of really great stuff on there. His Metal Mondays and Wanky Wednesdays riffs are a lot of fun, and he's really good music lessons in general.

    Any Paul Gilbert lessons..

    I remember in about 2011 buying a capo that came with a free week of online lessons from Jam Play. I saved it for a week when my wife was away and learned so much..

    Bro! I love your channel I've improved more these last couple months watching your videos than in my last six years of playing.

    I second Troy Grady's free stuff on the youtube channel and Ben Eller's more direct and to-the-point explanations and examples of the same pickslanting/crosspicking techniques.
