I find there is a downside to youtube. Here is a senario: Say you have a ton of talent but the direction you chose in life was to make music a hobby versus a career. You decide to record a short guitar solo video and place it on youtube. You only put it up there because you thought it would be cool to do and tell your friends and family about. It could be the greatest guitar solo ever. Now, I don't believe you can say there is a greatest guitar solo ever because it's an opinion, but I'm just trying to make a point that I guarantee there will be a few jealous morons the first day leaving feedback saying you basically suck. I've seen a Petrucci video where some kid left feedback saying he sucked! Now, we can all agree that John Petrucci does not suck. He may not be your favorite or the best out there, but he certainly does not suck. I understand that when you chose to place a video on youtube (in Petrucci's case obviously a fan did), you are opening yourself up. However, I think there are some fairly talented musicians, including myself, who will not place a video on youtube because they don't want to be ripped apart or even have freinds and family read comments from people ripping them apart. I think 99% the negative comments I read on there are based on jealousy. Why not have another another version of youtube where there are no comments? Maybe there is already and I don't know about it.
