Not only do I agree 100% with your assessment, but I would also say @Chris Smith UK has an indomitable spirit. His videos have received plenty of feedback, some of it blunt and fairly harsh and he handles it like a champ. There are plenty who would have been crushed.
Think of the advice given to beginners: get a teacher, practice daily, find opportunities to play with other musicians. Many beginners ignore some or all of these. Chris does every single one of them! He can't help but continue to improve. I'm a fan!
