If you’re thinking of recording guitar videos, you’re in the right place with our guitarist’s guide to vlogging. And the timing couldn’t be better, as in recent years there’s been a gradual shift in the way we consume guitar content. Even ten years ago, the idea that you didn’t have to be in a big band to be a famous guitarist seemed fanciful. Now, thanks to the emergence of professional YouTubers like Jared Dines, Blue DeTiger and Davie504, that’s exactly what’s happening. 

Guitar vloggers aren’t necessarily pro-level musicians with a profile based on their musical output. In fact, they’re often just super-enthusiastic about their instruments, and gambled on there being other like-minded individuals out there who would enjoy their guitar videos. The great news is that it isn’t hard to follow in their footsteps, whether you have a basic setup or one of the world’s best electric guitars to show off.
