    Found this yesterday:






    I must say I admire his guitar playing skills, but wow what a despicable individual he is. Put a man in a position of power and you'll see his true character I guess?

    Three minutes in to that first video and I had to switch it off. Barely knowing what the guy was talking about, I was further disconcerted by the cut-edits and totally ignorant of the innumerable references to things that meant, literally, nothing to me. So be nice to me and whittle it down to a simple precis of the story, please.

    Quite apart from Chapman's "Position of Power" being utterly beyond me, the whole thing is weird...

    I watched way too much of both videos...

    The Kardashians don't even do drama like that...

    I couldn't make it all the way through the first video. Some people just need to turn off their cameras and get outside more.

    Not sure I understand the concept of shutting down someone cause you don't like what they say, just don't listen to them if you don't wanna hear it. But, I will say, I do like Glenn Fricker!

    This is the guy that would do the 20 min "demo" videos, where it was 90% talking and jacking each other off, right?

    That seems to about sum it up.

    I struggle to get more than three minutes through both vids.

    This is partly because of the constant cut-edits, but mainly because ALL concerned appear to be douche-nozzles.

    The response from Riff City Guitars on Chapman's video was quite interesting....

    Chappers need to hire Agnesi to handle risk management....

    The drama started with some unknown utuber named guitars kdh... Not sure if he did due diligence on his content... Some did shed light on Chappers' questionable business practices relating to his brand and social marketing....

    The whole situation simply put:

    a guy with a small Youtube channel says a few unpleasant things about Rob Chapman, a bigger channel brings it to a bigger audience, mister Chapman responds with a video and doesn't stop his fanbase from threatening violence, murder and shaming, rather just sits back, relaxes and watches the shitstorm unfold.

    Screw drama. Death threats are were the problem lies.

    Remember growing up reading about the Salem Witch Trials and thinking about how mentally imbalanced people must have been to work themselves up into such a fury? I think the same about modern times.
