And another thing ... just kidding. But seriously I don’t need some patronizing teenager telling me what the difference is between a precision and Jazz is , like he’s some old timer that played with the wrecking crew 🤣

Youtube is too useful a resource to send to Room 101.

I know musos that have learnt from youtube and they are amazing.  So I have to put up with the dross.  Besides, how am I going to see car crash videos?

Peace

Davo

I've seen a fair few people on YouTube and not had a massive problem with any of them. If I don't like their style, I simply move on. The great thing about this thread is 1) I hadn't come across any of these guys and 2) I avoided clicking the links! I don't know what I am doing right but hopefully I will keep on doing it.

It seems to be a modern phenomenon, if there's something you don't like/it annoys you/etc, instead of simply ignoring it and moving on, to publically comment about it on an internet forum. If people simply moved on to something better, then the bad ones would get fewer views (I believe the YouTube platform also monitors how much of a video is watched, not just if it were clicked on eg accidentally) and shuffle down the list of suggested videos (you know, the algorithm which puts suggestions on the home page or along the right hand side). People are intelligent too (well, some) and clickbait is fairly easy to avoid - or if not, shouldn't take too long to realise and not watch the whole thing.

If the rubbish wasn't continually stirred up, it would settle at the bottom.

I've found Troy's ( AGF-l7-iAA1I2_OzeWF7C2FfATZcl9wCWNYxfDWL TJH3113 ) cover videos useful.

He plays very accurately and clearly with a good sound balance. You can always see what his fingers are doing and the video/sound can stand being slowed to 50%.

The only thing is sometimes he goes a bit random at the very end!

Except it's an international pastime to not ignore stuff that bugs us and to comment on it on public fora 😀. It's the life blood of the Internet without which would crash. Anyway, the rubbish still exists even if the those who don't like it ignore it as there are plenty who love it. The  serial gurner I identified in the OP has thousands of  👍 which outweigh the 👎

I find Rick Beato annoying, chiefly because the level for the spoken parts of his videos are always significantly louder than the musical parts.

Why are you all so angry?

Because we are being left behind by a world that we no longer understand nor like, it's the same, generation after generation. I no longer understand nor like the things that the youth dig, why interact with it? It’s not for us. We are no longer ‘cutting edge’, I’d venture we’re not even relevant. I’m content doing my own thing, very little of which would be understood nor appreciated by young people, that’s ok, it’s the natural order of things.

I discovered these by accident quite recently and it was a proper "What the actual f#@k" moment. First of all I honestly can't believe that anyone is so narcissistic that they film themselves listening to a song and think anyone gives a flying rats donkey what their (usually staged) reaction is. Secondly why would anyone on the planet actually be interesting in watching it. Well, other than me obviously, but that was just because I had to watch two or three just to get my head around what was (or rather wasn't) going on. I mean Jesus H Mary mother of Santa. Is that really what passes for entertainment these days?

Because I'm not a millionaire YouTube influencer!

So far I've raised less than £15 in my Amazon account...

Harmonics sound better on a fretless 😉

I watch quite a lot of bass, guitar and drum vids on YT. In some cases, the YTers are quite good. In many they're so-so. In some  they're just fooking, downright irritating. Taking the #1 spot is this guitar geek. Sure he can play well but boy does his presenting style grate. Maybe it's me but I can't handle manic. I can't abide manic stand-ups like Michael McIntyre, Lee Evans, Robin Williams and Keith Lemon either. Over to you

 

WTF? Best avoid I think 😂

I think they forget the point of the review (i.e. what it is they're trying to show you) and start showing you their chops. Some are just adverts basically and don't give you any negatives about what they're trying to review, so its impossible to make an informed choice.

I was just thinking the same. The comment about people thinking YouTube is a career, if it pays well then why can't it be? I'm sure a generation or two ago had the same thoughts about I.T. Playing on computers isn't a career. 

As for annoying people on YouTube, I find not watching their videos does the trick. In general, not engaging with annoying people makes them far less annoying.

...similarly, how many of us have had to convince somebody that actually, making music can be a career if you're making money from it?

Exactly! 

I watched it once for about 5 minutes after a mate of mine told me how hilarious it was. 

What a load of utter tosh. A TV show not worth watching, full of wannabe realty TV "stars" hamming it up whilst watching TV shows not worth watching. 

I really do despair of the mentality of a world that considers that entertainment. 

Then again, I stopped watching television when TOWIE became a thing. Talk about the dumbing down of society.

I guess you must have mentioned or clicked on something - I have never seen that guy before.
