I'm not sure I would consider people like Cobus and Meytall as decent or famous. Let's face it, there are wonderful players out there in YouTube land, (Cobus and Meytall included), and I don't know how much of a living they actually earn off of their videos, but whenever I see a great player on YouTube, but a lack of being out there playing live with other respected musicians and making music (as opposed to playing to backing tracks) something is missing for me.
I've been tracking some well-respected ukulele players on Youtube, but those people don't need backing tracks. Same with all the other instruments, so I think that's different.
