Anything by Little Brother or Kirk Lorange is worth watching.

I like to search Expert Village for lessons. People post whole series. One guy has a whole section of videos just for guitar setup. He shows the truss rod, inotation. Changing strings on an acoustic, electric and floyd rose. Very handy.

I've just discovered the Justin Sandercoe lessons on YouTube, and his accompanying website, and I think his style is rather good.

I have Kirk's "No Apostrophe" album if anybody is interested. It's 20 years old (the original recording that is) and I still give it a spin once in a while.

Regards,
Paul

For help with the bass part of Tool songs I check out this guys' videos:

(P.S. you should watch the whole video posted in the link it gets especially cool around 1:26-ish)

And for guitar help:

I found the Justin SanderCoe youtube lessons through a article on Slashdot. There was some concern about his lessons being taken down because of copyright concerns. So he moved and reorganized his youtube site or sites now. So I ran over there, found his easy to understand version of Mr. Jones and was much pleased. He's got about 40 odd lesson videos there and has a link to his own website where he's prepared a blues instructional dvd which he's going to be selling shortly or so it says. I've personally just discovered the wealth of youtube lessons by guitar players and am enjoying the rush of knowledge I'm getting. The same thing explained to me by different folks is good for my ability to understand the concepts and things that don't translate well via the book - like strum patterns. Good stuff over there.

Most excellent. I had no idea that this site even existed. Watching some banjo instruction at the moment. Thanks kindly. I remember there being a onewingedangel here but she wasn't a guest. A young and enthused person soaking up all the knowledge here very quickly. Great website suggestion.

Yes, I'm slow to arrive to the youtube revolution but I've been searching there for a day or two and came up with a few guitar players who have a collection of lessons. Here is my short list of the ones I've found.

Let's say you are a complete beginner. You've just bought, borrowed or inherited a guitar and are excited but have no clue at all about what to do next. Well, what would you say if I told you there was a guy on youtube who could get you playing today. Crazy I know, but there is such a fellow, patient and willing to teach. He's got each to follow videos on youtube complete with chord charts and strumming patterns there on the screen while he explains to you each part of the song. And he'll show you the easiest way to play it along with a couple of different strumming patterns and pretty soon you've figured out that Oasis strum from Wonderwall that's eluded you. His nickname there is lazyfret, his name is John, he's British and has a new website with more teaching materials.

A very good player with an easy to understand way of explaining things. A nice "Mr. Jones", from the Counting Crows lesson easy enough even for me. He has a good variety of early songs and good explanations of basic guitar concepts. He's a Brit, was a member of Katie Melua's band and gets you though electric or acoustic versions of songs very nicely. Also has a website.
http://www.youtube.com/profile_videos?user=JustinSandercoe

This guy is lights out the most prolific song lesson guy on youtube. His stuff is heavy on strumming, chord patterns and swing patterns and such. If you're just starting guitar then find his 30 one minute strumming and chord lessons that are there at his website for free. Every few days up pops a new song that he's arranged for one guitar and voice and shows you a portion on how to play it, usually the end of the lesson performance. A couple of his song lessons are there on youtube for free as are examples of the songs completed. If you follow the links to his site you'll see all the songs from country to classic rock in large numbers as well as a chance to request songs to be turned into lessons. If you are dying to learn how to play Man of Constant Sorrow in regular tuning or a Merle Haggard song or countless others then you'll plunk down your 2.50 for the download of the whole lesson. His name is Kirby, he's a Canadian and his stuff is intermediate guitar.

This fellow is a youngster. I saw a song I hadn't heard before called "Hey There Delilah" from the Plain White T's and having heard about the Justin Coe stuff elsewhere I searched youtube and this young fellow had a easy to understand lesson for it. As it turns out he has a number of good little lessons as well.

So for me right now, the moral of the story is that if there is a song you are looking to play there might be someone on youtube who has put up a few chord progressions, some fingerings and some explanation of what he or she has discovered about playing that certain song. Youtube is also good for short videos about a dramatic prairie dog or for watching Triumph the Insult Dog ripping into the weather in Hawaii or ripping into a line full of Star Wars fans waiting to see one of those latest movies. At least for right now that is.

I had never seen this site before. I am listening to the Celtic sheebeg mp3 and exploring the sites. Thanks for putting it up there. :-)
