    I've been trying to get into lead playing and struggling a bit. I had been working on the solo to Highway to Hell from an online tab and listening to the song, but it just wasn't clicking.

    So I found this guy on Youtube and it just brought everything together for me. He gives the right amount of detail without any annoying repetitiveness. There's heaps of songs he's done and many of them go really into depth with the solos which is a shortcoming of many other videos I've seen.

    Anyone else found any good instructional stuff on Youtube or elsewhere online?

    To me a good one is this: rocker the metal.

    He doesn't speak during his videos. I saw only a part of them, for AC/DC's solos, but I found them useful because he first plays and then shows the riff or solo in different licks with tabs below it.

    This is my main go-to channel for song lessons, too! I like his teaching style and the transcription seem to be very accurate.

    Apart from GuitarLessons365 there are some other Channels I watched for song lessons:
    Marty Music
    JustinGuitarSongs
    AndyGuitar

    I think they are a bit more targeted to beginners though and not as in depth as GuitarLessons365.

    Then there are some smaller channels with lessons for specific artists. For example if you want to play Ghost songs there is no way around NotANamelessGhoul. For Black Sabbath I like to watch the videos of TheSterlingSound. Not really lessons but very helful!

    For general guitar lessons I frequent JustinGuitar as I also bought his DVDs and Books and follow his courses to learn guitar. He's a great teacher and I can recommend his lessons to every beginning to intermediate player!

    I forgot another channel which is great for rock/metal oriented song lessons: GuitarForce
    Well explained, with tone tips and on screen tabs.

    I usually search for a specific tune I want to learn and go through the list, to see which one sounds the closest to what I have in my head.

    My latest craze is this one:

    Thanks everyone for contributing, I've now subscribed to some of those other channels.

    While not a Youtube channel, and not free, for general guitar lessons I can highly recommend the guys at Truefire. Lots of great stuff from great teachers. I think you can get like a month free access, then it's a paid subscription, or the way I do it which is just buy the lessons you want and work on them in your own time. They often run good sales too, so it's not a bad idea to wait for one of them and buy a few lessons. The interface is really great too and they're always improving things.

    Thanks for the tip! I will definitely look into it when I am done with Justin's Intermediate Course. I like the approach to pay per lesson and be able to download it instead of paying for a subscription. Marty Music also has some interesting lessons that are reasonably priced. I like his style of teaching, too (as far as I can tell by watching his free Youtube videos).
