    well, I think I agree with him on the law of diminishing returns. I would love to have a $6500 les paul 60th anniversary 59, but it isn't going to do anything that a LP standard that I buy used for $1700-ish will do. especially when I take it out and play live - whatever bit of sweet fairy dust that sets the '59 apart will disappear in the mix.

    and whatever the standard does won't be much different from what a studio does, for even less money.

    I agree. 12 minutes to get 7 suggestions, probably 4 are obvious, 2 are wrong and one has merit. From someone with no credentials other than having a video recorder and an opinion. No thanks.

    I also don't have time watch. But an EXH Soul Food appears conspicuously on the cover page under "Avoid these 7 Guitar Gear Mistakes."

    I hope that doesn't mean that Lesson 3 is: "Don't buy an EXH Soul Food."

    I listened to the whole thing. I agree with it all and perhaps why I am not a big fan of this guy. I don't learn anything from him ... ever. I'm sure others do, fine, but for me, I want to learn something for my 12 minutes.

    For some reason, I can’t stand watching any of the content that comes from that guy’s YouTube channel.

    So he writes off multi-FX because he doesn't like menus ? That's his problem, not the FX.

    This is just a guy's opinions. Oh, hangon, this is just my opinion. Which is better, obviously.

    Would you consider providing a summary for those of us who weren't able to make it through the whole video?

    No.8. Take no notice of so called You Tube experts.
    Do your own thing. Or we will never see the next Hendrix, Iommi, EVH, Thunders, Vai, SRV, Cobain etc.
    Sorry Shane - I do enjoy your videos but it is just advertising.

    Like gear reviews.

    Dislike pontificating.

    Love getting to use "pontificating" in a post!

    You are better off paying attention here on TDPRI. Nothing on that video should be a surprise to anyone here.

    I liked his videos when he’d compare a mustang lll to the amp it was trying to model.

    This one not so much

    i don't get the hostility to people posting on youtube - it's no different than people posting here.

    I generally enjoy Shane's videos, but this one was totally pointless.

    In some ways internet video and even radio haven't created a better information highway necessarily

    But way too much talk without getting to the point

    I clicked on the video and then when I saw who it was , I said no way
