Is anyone else completly fed up with the Guitar Tricks YouTube ad that plays EVERY time a click on a YouTube video? I like this site, and have been a full member for 2 years, but if I see that ad one more time I'm going to cancel my membership. It's so ANNOYING that I need to see an ad 1000 times for something I am already subscribed to. There is such a thing as negative effects to persitant advertising.

I just did a YouTube search on "Guitar Tricks" and played the first four videos listed. No ads. Of course, that might be the result of my AdblockPlus being set 'on' for YouTube. In any case, I don't remember ever seeing a GT ad on YouTube until I intentionally looked for one this morning.

Try Adblock (it's free and effective) or try patience.

Good luck, have fun.

I see them. Usually with a 5 sec countdown to skip add.

These aren't on Guitar Tricks vids though.

So ads for GT help others get their videos on to YouTube.

How else do you think YouTube exists if it wasn't by adverts.

Ads for GT attract subscribers . The more the merrier to keep the cost of GT as low as possible. [br]Amazing what people can let upset them.

I have never seen an ad for Guitar Tricks on YouTube, although I do often see them for other "learn guitar" sites or software


I wish this forum had a "block user" feature. Possibly I'm not the only one......

No sense blaming GT. They don't place the ads, an algorithm does. Try the ad blocker like John points out.


This year the diet is definitely gonna stick!

Another alternative is just don't use YouTube. Guaranteed that you won't see the GT ads.

Yeh, like others have said, it's not GT doing this. It's YouTube's algorithm. I was also seeing the GT ad a lot. It knows you are a guitar player and so it's showing you ads that are relevant to guitar players.[br][br]I think there is a way to stop seeing repetitive ads assuming you are signed in to YouTube.[br]There is a little (i) icon in the bottom left that you can click on (at least on desktop YouTube)

When you click it shows a popup with a link to "Stop Seeing this Ad". You will of course continue to see other guitar related ads! :-)[br][br]

I see that ad ALL THE TIME myself! I wish the YOUTUBE algorithm could just know I have a membership and back off on the ad.

same but different


Mike Olekshy friday night youtubes seem to be getting interupted with more ads.


Still worthwhile as great sessions


Worth the ads


Youtube may also be pushing ads because they are also pushing an ad free subscription at the same time

If it's not that add, it'll be another. Seems like you're just wound to tight. You need to listen to feelin groovy by Simon and Garfunkle.

I think downloading a ad blocker is old trick, So you can try the Brave Browser, Because this browser can block each and every ads while using.

agree! It'd be fantastic if YouTube's algorithm acknowledged memberships, providing ad-free experiences for subscribers. Fingers crossed for enhanced personalization in the future!..

Is anyone else incredibly frustrated with the Guitar Tricks YouTube ad that plays every time I click on a video? I appreciate the site and have been a full member for two years, but the constant repetition of this ad is driving me crazy.

Kinda weird.  A few GT members have complained about this but I've never experienced it.

I am likewise surprised to hear about this since I haven't come across a single YouTube ad (or any other ad) on this site in the three years that I've been a subscriber. But then, I use ad-blocking browser extensions on all browsers. Apparently, they're very effective, not to mention completely free.

I mean you will still see the adverts if you do lol.  Nothing to do with GT, its youtubes advertising algorithm.  Try adblockers
