    Danish pete is a good guitarist. He is annoying as hell with his commentary.
    I don't care about any of the other stuff you mentioned, purple guitars?

    I don't subscribe to any YouTube channels, but if something piques my interest, I'll usually watch.

    They (Anderson's) don't usually interest me too much.

    OR...during a period of hard times, people might like the escapism of watching a few goofy guitar videos. Not everything needs to be a constant reminder of how crummy things have been.

    You expressed an opinion. I expressed an opinion. If you felt I took it to a personal level, I was merely seeing things differently and mentioned your take in the process. I reserve the right to do so in the future. I wish you no ill will - I just didn't relate to your apparent level of irritation with Danish Pete and said so.

    If you do not wish to risk similar exchanges in the future (I'm not sure if we've ever interacted before, but we may have), you have two options. Don't post your opinions and nobody will ever react in a way you don't like to an opinion of your's again... OR, ignore me and hope nobody else reacts to your opinions in ways you don't like. I won't be offended either way.

    Some get freebies, some don’t. It’s music gear not a new Covid vaccine approval.
    Wish I got freebies.

    I don't fall prey to advertising. Not at all. Nope. :thumb:

    You seem ever so slightly worked up.

    Its hard to not take it personally when you address me as "you", direct your comments at me, instead of the subject matter

    Consider yourself duly ignored from hereon in as you seem to like bullying others.

    Your subscriber level doesnt give you the right to attack people, maybe you think it does, but it doesnt

    No question that their gear videos are pure advertisement. Nothing wrong with that. They're a business. I acknowledge that and watch for the entertainment value, which varies. I love some of the interviews Lee does (which usually don't involve gear promotion) and seeing new gear, while taking the "reviews" for what they're worth.

    My favorite video of theirs is this, which I don't believe includes any gear promotion at all:

    I guess you won’t see this, but if you ever take a look through my posting history, you’ll see that I don’t make a habit of bullying anyone. I’m sorry you feel that I’ve bullied or attacked you. Neither was my intent.

    I'm not a subscriber. The videos do show up in my feed and every once in a while I'll start to watch one and end up shutting it off. Can't handle those guys constantly talking over each other at 100 MPH. I will admit the current line up is better then Chapman, that guy is about as slimy as they get.

    [QUOTE="CattleDog73, ]....Rick Beato earned a signature Gibson.[/QUOTE]

    I had to Google this because it's the most ridiculous thing I've read today anywhere.....

    A Gibson Rick Beato, I think that says everything you need to know about Gibson and the Internet......forget Andertons.

    I don't know exactly what the "rob Chapman" mess is/was all about, but apparently there was some sort of YouTube wars? I honestly couldn't care any less about that stuff. I don't like him or hate him, hell, I don't even know him.

    What I do find to be pretty cool, is the fact that the guy always seemed to nail those blindfolded challenges they would make him do.

    He could hear the differences between modeling amps and tubes, different brands of guitars and tone woods etc.

    All of the stuff that most of us say "you can't hear a difference"..... well... he usually nailed all of that. Consistently. Which I found to be pretty damn amusing.
    I can't hear subtle differences, nor do I really care too much, but that dude can. And it flys in the face of "internet fact", which I love when shiz like that happens.

    Oh, but Danish Pete still annoys me.

    Most of the professional YouTuber's are pretty upfront about the paid content. This is no different than watching a celebrity spokesperson do a commercial.
    But you lost me here...reeks of jealously, sorry.

    Never subscribed but always watched.

    It’s a shadow of what it used to be these days. Too polished and produced as well as not being funny anymore.

    Evidently there isn't much income to be had on YouTube. I used to enjoy Mary Spender but she has become tedious of late. I also enjoy Daryl Braun. He frequently has a different take than others.

    As others have said, it is mostly infomercials.

    Oh yes. I do enjoy Molly Tuttle's picking. I'm not sure she actually has a channel though.

    what I hate most is…I kinda like it. I’m a sucker for LP Specials and it looks great in Pelham Blue. But I’m sure it’ll be overpriced so I won’t be getting one.

    No one owes you any "sensitivity," especially anyone on youtube. And what exactly should they do? Stop trying to sell merchandise so more people can lose their jobs in a pandemic? I've only watched a few of their vids; I find most of them pretty annoying so I usually don't watch more of them. I think that's how it works: If you don't like it, don't watch it. Simple.
