I agree with the OP... It is especially annoying to me when learning an arrangement of a jazz standard.

Some players will ramble on about a half dozen chord variations in the middle of the lesson. "you can play it here or your can play it there, turn the IV chord into the I chord, etc"

All I wanted to know was how to play their arrangement of song X. AFTER you teach me that, then you can certainly ramble on about all the chord inversions & give me more options.

My other pet peeve is the need to spend 3-5 minutes in every video going over the tuning each string. I could understand it if the video was intended for absolute beginners. But any video for intermediate or above need only give tuning for 1 string and move on.
