    Mixed bag here too. I like some of his focused videos, can't watch any of his "live" type stuff... it's all way too rambly and him just looking at his group chat and I don't have time for that nonsense.

    I'll look at this one later. Mostly - I like his content. He's good with theory and production knowledge. And he can play the guitar.

    For me, amps make more difference than anything else.

    Agreed. I'll take a nice amp and a shit guitar (that stays in tune) over a shit amp with a nice guitar any day.

    Yes but even busted crap amps can have their uses.

    I always find the "what makes X song" great videos really obnoxious since he doesn't really address what makes the song work. He just lists some of the theory of how the song is composed.
    There's a podcast I really like called "I'm in love with that song" that does the same thing but much better (tho more theory light) in my opinion.

    They work ok for practice and pitching into bon fires for fun.

    A crap amp is not the same thing as a cheap amp. There are cheap amps the kick ass. There are also definitely shit amps that are shit for pretty much everything.

    I agree that something that is "useless" is for it's intended purpose is empirically so. Life experience has taught me that most stuff can be used somehow, if only as a door stop or footrest. Or even cannibalized for parts.

    sounds like insanity to me

    I like how he defends the guitar amp insanity but says DONT SPEND ON MICS that's insane!

    haahaaa… so buying 100 Guitar amps is ok, but buying 100 microphones is crazy....

    this is like GAS gone off the rails...like his title says- at the end comments just use what you have and get something to the DAW...

    Hes actually trying to "keep it under control" at the end, and he says exactly what my religion is too...buy something sell something.
    Especially for us solo-HR mediocre shade tree hobbyists...
