Found another great channel, this time about the art of mixing.

The House Of Kush https://www.youtube.com/c/TheHouseofKushTV/videos

Looks like he started really getting into this since the lockdowns started. He gets into the psychology of mixing really well, explaining how to avoid the mental pitfalls that our minds present us when listening in on a piece of music as we work on it. Speaking from experience, this guy really knows his shit.

I've only just stumbled upon this channel and watched this single video, but it's a mindblowingly straightforward walk through a lot of material about the use of different scales (with a few examples near the end):

If he has anymore videos as good as this, I'll be back to tell you.

Can't work out whether this video is trolling/satire or they're genuinely excited[1] by the bland shit that is John Mayer's latest album.

Or maybe John Mayer is trolling them[2]?

There was also this exchange earlier:

Which led to this:

 1. They don't seem particularly excited.
 2. Apparently he has said this album has been designed to antagonise people.

Indeed he is...

I think all the videos I posted earlier are in on the troll. It's the only way to make sense, seeing as those people aren't usually waiting with bated breath to review albums. I also forgot to mention that Music Is Win has also posted about this album (or rather the preceding single, like Mary Spender).

Been checking out some more of the channel and the man (Oliver Prehn) is an excellent teacher.[1]  This video is the first he recommends to beginners, which involves improvising using only the black keys and includes an activity where you draw a storyboard and improvise a piece which evokes the mood and story told by your drawings.
