I jump around a lot and am always finding someone new and interesting. Some are instructional, some are not guitar, and others are just guitarists playing. Here are a few current favorites. Some I watch regularly, others from time to time if the topic interests me.
Rick Beato - music theory, production, interviews, "What Makes this Song Great?" is a fascinating segment. Adam Neely - music theory, commentary - great sense of humor. Aimee Nolte- Jazz Piano instruction Kent Hewitt - Jazz Piano instruction Jens Larsen - Jazz Guitar instruction Jamie Holroyd - Jazz Guitar instruction Sandra Sherman - Jazz Guitar instruction Fretboard Confidential (David Hamburger) - the guy is a walking encyclopedia of Blues styles. Martin Taylor - Solo Jazz guitar. Fabulous arrangements. He's been adding a commentary at end of recent videos. Chris Whiteman - Just great Jazz playing both solo and in trio setting. Tim Lerch - All around guitarist, but especially good fingerstyle solo Jazz. Was a student of Ted Greene. Plays Jazz on a Tele. Walter Rodrigues Jr. - beautiful fingerstyle solo guitar. Some of the most tasteful arrangements I've heard.
Guitar Gathering (Steve Krenz) - weekly live stream. General guitar instruction and interviews in various styles.
I don't really watch any guitar channels on YouTube - I've got enough instructional videos on my hard drive to last me two lifetimes lol. Robert Renman comes up once in a while, he's got some good stuff.
On YouTube I mostly watch farming channels (Minnesota Millennial Farmer is my favorite), "The Critical Drinker" does movie reviews that are pretty humorous, Jordan Peterson actually has an entire semester of his college classes in psychology on YouTube, I think I watched the first 4 so far. Oh can't forget the "how to prune your tomato plants" videos, also watch some on lawn care. And I was watching TacoJoe build a Cobra kit car so I could daydream about doing that myself
And funny cat videos of course!
I want you to know that someone cares. Not me, but someone.

I'm watching a lot of Tom Bukovac while under semi-lockdown. He more or less started this Youtube series (renamed partway through from I think "Corona Class" to "Home Skoolin') because all his session work dried up. He's a widely recorded Nashville session player who grew up as a rocker/prog guy in Cleveland. It's not really online lessons. I watch just cause he has good stories and is a heckuva player, and I love the completely down-two-earth quality of both him and the production.
Like Phil I watch Beato frequently, and one of my guilty pleasures is checking out Rabea Massaad and the eclectic array of stuff he shows up in.
The note being played at this moment *is* the song
Rachelf, a young female guitarist who has made very impressive strides since just starting 4 years ago. Lora of helpful and fun content on her channel.
Brandon Acker, an incredibly versatile classically trained guitarist who plays an assortment of uncommon instruments such as the theorbo, various lutes and baroque era instruments. Awesome channel full of content
Daniel Tidwell, Vurez, thewhiteswanpig, maromaro1337 are just a few others I enjoy.
