any channels that you kind folk and swine herders alike can recommend for a shy young girl?

to me, a good channel would be one that is both active and versatile in terms of what it offers - varying skill levels accommodated, with a mixture of exercise for technical proficiency, scales, soloing, etc

thoughts / opinions / racist tirades?

Depends on your area of interest. Stefan Grossman's "Guitar Workshop" is a great source for mostly-acoustic stuff.... Blues, fingerstyle, early jazz, ragtime.
