About 4 years ago, I started uploading student shot guitar lesson videos to YouTube as a resource for my private students if they got stuck at home.
I had no idea that the channel would be watched by anyone else… Now, 4 years later the channel almost 1 million views.
It’s been interesting which videos have been the most popular. At number 1, by a fair margin, is Metallica’s Mama Said, then Tame Impala – Less I know the better, Solomon Burke – How I got to Memphis, Foo Fighters – This is a call and Billy Bragg’s New England coming in at number 5…
And for the most part people are really positive. I must say I thought I would be trolled to within an inch of my life, but it appears not. I mean there are a few folks who have been less than complementary, but 99.9% have been lovely and appreciative.
So there you go – the great YouTube experiment has been a success. You can check out the channel at http://YouTube.com/simonmorelguitar, where there are over 200 lessons now available…
