Last week I posted a short list of YouTube channels – the best acoustic fingerstyle guitar channels. This list was based on the number of channel views, only includes individual guitar players (as opposed to magazines, fans, etc.), and has been edited for taste.
So here’s a few more of the best YouTube channels by guitar players. We’ll highlight some other YouTube channels in the weeks to come: record labels, brands, and more.
On a side note: As I keep exploring, it’s interesting to see who has a presence and who doesn’t. Tommy Emmanuel? Yes, has a phenomenal YouTube channel. Phil Keaggy? Not so much.
1. Tommy Emmanuel, c.g.p. – The amazing and ever-present Tommy Emmanuel has a top notch YouTube channel with lots of great performances, interviews and more.
2. Gareth Evans – A great fingerstyle guitarist dedicated to providing lessons and education.
3. Kelly Valleau – Kelly has a bunch of fingerstyle training material available on his website with instructional videos and tabs.
4. Ulli Bögershausen – A German solo fingerstyle guitarist with concert chops and a great series of videos on fingerstyle technique.
5. Per-Olov Kindgren – A Swedish classical guitarist taking on everything from Bach to Jeff Buckley. I especially like his rendition of “Maria” by Leonard Bernstein from Westside Story.
6. Frédéric Mesnier – French guitarist and songwriter bridging classical, blues and swing on his acoustic.
7. soYmartino – Slovakian born guitarist rocking Spanish covers, originals and more.
