    I've been playing guitar for over 25 years. I took lessons in the beginning but I'm mostly self taught.

    In the last few years, I've become hooked on YouTube guitar lesson. Marty Schwartz is my favorite so far but there are a few others.

    I'm mainly looking for blues, classic rock, "outlaw country" type lessons. Any suggestions?

    Way too many for me. I have tried to keep with one video lesson or another but I always seem to find one that works better. I finally gave up and just started taking lessons.

    I'll add Jackson Mace of Guitarmentor.com
    Great twist on some good covers and always trying to teach a specific technique. More of a gigging point of view than actual authentic note by note lessons

    For classic rock lessons that explain the technical aspect our own Hoodrio and Tonedr both do an excellent job. Also for rock Mike Gross has some good lessons.

    I like the guy who used to go by the screen name, "Fretkillr"...

    Up until about three years ago, he used to take requests... Then one day he suddenly deleted his Youtube account, along with all his videos.

    Luckily several people saved his videos and many have been re-uploaded, but alas, Fretkillr himself is nowhere to be found. There is a rumor that Fretkillr was actually a somewhat famous professional musician doing the Youtube videos simply as a hobby/way to kill time... Maybe he got in trouble with copyright/performance issues with ASCAP or BMI.

    As far as I know, his identity remains a mystery.

    I like the fact that he doesn't waste time talking about which finger goes on what fret... He lets the video cover that stuff.

    (ps. I think his voice sounds a lot like Kenny Rogers... Could it be? Whaddaya think?! ;) :rolleyes: )

    What ever happened to paying some dude exactly 10 years older than you to give you lessons in his basement while the dudes mom chained smoked generic ciggerettes upstairs?

    In my case the dude would be 50 and his mom would be on an oxygen tank

    These guys are really good.

    Marty is good but talks too much.

    One of the ones I like is "mytwangyguitar". They aren't really lessons, but he plays the song so you can see what the guitar is doing. Start to finish.

    With so many of these songs, once you get the gist of it, you can play it. Some of these guys work to show you every nuance and note. Sort of like the tab magazines. I won't ever learn anything note for note. PLus, when playing with others, it's not likely they will either so I like the lessons where you get the idea and can implement it immediately.

    I will add Nick Jaffe to the list.

    Nick's lessons and content are a little different than many. I suggest sorting through his youtube playlists to separate guitar lessons from recording lessons from performing and other stuff.

    The lessons are divided between short ones and 30 minute play along lessons with jam tracks at Band Camp site.

    Andy's lessons from Pro Guitar Shop are good. Mostly classic rock and some more modern stuff too.

    You get to see/hear a lot of different gear. Not all songs are complete, but you get the main signature licks.
