This is a thing that has dawned on me slowly, as one got into corona-quarantine and has had too much spare time left on my hand, browsing through numerous things on YouTube, gearhead, and a lot of things that I've missed in terms of industry news, new guitars, new gear, as one was occupied with day jobs... Is it only me, but whenever I see someone demo anything on YouTube, and it's not only amatuers, and especially electric guitars, with hard tail, they demo things and whenever they play a regular chord within the first 5 fret (there's no money above...yada yada..) it is always sounds out of tune if ever so slightly. It's almost 9 out of 10. Even some professionals. Except the old school guys. Whenever they play crunching solos, and riff distorted they don't play chords at all, and its harder to tell. It's when they initially try some pedal out, and they start off with "dry" sound an a regular open G chord, or E, or D I sense an un-intonated thing, or downright out of tune. Of course, super professionals like Pete Thorn doesn't fall into this trap as he hears if or when he goes out of tune, but almost all the rest. From pros to duds. Even when they play posh high end boutique guitars with pristine timbre and yada yada... Or is it just me? at around 03:00 when he demonstrates clean sound with chords... Maybe thin strings, he doesn't notice it, or just don't give a ****. But yet he plays clearly and cleanly to display the bell like timbre... At 06:45... it even has a locking nut FR system which is said to keep even the pesky Les Pauls in tune. I could YT-drop all day with a dozen more videos, with pristine guitars, and high end boutique guitars, trem systems, or hardtails, and they hype this and that tone, and sustain, and quality of their guitars to no end, but yet can't hear when THEY go out of tune. Someone else discovered this, or you have just given up?
