    Who’s a fan besides me? My playing was stagnant before I discovered this guy on YouTube. He has brought me a long way with blues and soloing which was really nonexistent prior. I’ve been learning his new lesson on the “you shook me all night long” solo trying to get it nailed down all day and my fingertips are feeling it. Feels good. I plan on delving into some of his paid blues lessons soon. Anybody a paying member of his site yet?

    I'm kind of a Marty Schwartz fanboy. If I want to find a video to learn a song, his is the first I search for. I like how he keeps things lighthearted and has a few inside jokes if you've been a longtime viewer. One of these days, I'm going to buy his blues package on DVD, not so much because I want it. but feel a little obligated after watching so much of his stuff for free.

    I also like Justin, but, for the life of me, I have the damndest time understanding that guy. Between his accent and how fast he speaks, I have to slow down the video to .5 or .75 just to figure out what he's sayin'. Ya know what I'm sayin'?

    Marty's branching out and doing interviews and other stuff which is cool. He was on the 'Everyone Loves Guitar' podcast a while back. He has an interesting story to how he got where he is. He's definitely a driven person.

    Marty is my fav. He doesn't talk to much about meaningless stuff.
    He gives you just what you need to know.
    Speaks clearly, too.
    Another I like is Mike Gross.

    I have a friend who is into Marty and recently saw him in concert. Said he was amazing. I like his lessons, but his song-based lessons are often off the mark. Still, a good instructor and great player.

    He's a great teacher and, as many have mentioned here, he goes straight to the point without rambling (like many YouTube "lessons" where the teacher basically teaches nothing and just tries and sell their paid material), however if you're more of an intermediate player his videos may feel too slow and focus on seemingly obvious stuff - if that's the problem and what you want to learn are songs, GuitarLessons365 may be best for you.

    Whether it's true or not, I read that he simplifies or dumbs down his song based lessons since many of his viewers tend be on the beginner/intermediate side of the power curve.

    My next favorite channel is the Stitch Method. If you haven’t checked that out do. He has a lot of playlists in order for teaching things like mastering the pentatonic and blues and basic theory. He has a really cool thing called the “neverlost system” for soloing up and down the fretboard in the pentatonic. You’ll really like this guy if your a jamband fan or blues fan. Smart dude

    I watch his stuff and learn from it, but I was recently disappointed with his video about how to play Joe Walsh's Funk #49. He was way off. I don't see how dumbing it down is the reason, since the right way to play it isn't any harder.

    Seems like he learns by ear and may be off every now and again. He talks a lot about how they do it this way live or that way on the record leads me to believe the by ear theory

    I like GuitarLessons365.com with Carl Brown. His tabs seem very accurate to me, and no wasted time.

    He is great IMO. Good free lessons. He covers allot of stuff too. I've only watched a few but they were all good stuff.

    I like Marty but he is off quite often ,for example the BB box he teaches is 8 to 10 but it should be 10-12 frets,still good info though and a great guy, Stitch is good too but,I've learned the most from Justin Guitar.:cool:

    The B.B. box is just a reference for box 3. It can be played in any key not just 10-12.

    Yeah, I do catch myself turning to this guy (Carl Brown) for solos or riffs that I get stumped on after trying on my own. Quite a library of tunes that I personally dig and want to learn.

    I've gone to almost all of the above sites, but I enjoy anyonecanplayguitar.co.uk the most. Adrian's taste is more in line with my own than any other instructor I've seen. I doubt anyone else has multiple lessons devoted tot Wire, the Minutemen, or Big Star.

    I was asking myself who is Carl brown? And went to you tube and saw it’s that guy lol. I’m subscribed to him and watch him all the time. He is very good and accurate he’s like my #3 go to just didn’t know his name. He’s a bit dry but a great player
