It’s almost Friday so this post is going to be a little less education-heavy than usual. Let’s treat our ears with this list of 19 brilliant musicians from YouTube.
Just to clarify, not everyone on this list is a guitar player, but they are all extremely talented people who, not without a reason, gained much popularity on YouTube.
In random order:
Mike is one extraordinary “A Capella” guy. Why? Simply because he creates his own bizarre and remarkable kind of music. Straight from the music accompaniment down to the vocals and voice blending, all from his mouth. So sit back, relax and have fun watching!

Not your ordinary typical boy band here. They are brothers Alejandro, Daniel and Fabian. They play different instruments creating new renditions from some of the new pop songs released by famous artists. Some versions are way cooler than the originals. They are more for acoustic and easy-listening kind of music. Just chill and watch.
