I watch videos all the time, but I watch for motivation to improve as well as to start spotting elements of things I can do and see how they can be tied together. But at this point, I’m not trying to come up with anything original, I’m still learning.
First, I think it’s good that people want to watch videos. Second, I feel that as part of a learning process, people want to emulate what they see in the videos. To acquire more skills is always a good thing.
I’m not saying we all need to “be original”. My end goal is to be ale to do long combos, which may include made up elements, but for the purposes of enjoyment and relaxation. I think have the videos is a great resource, and I know because I download a lot to keep handy. But, we all need to be able to get to a point where we just use the videos to get ideas from, not just to copy.
