First of all THANK YOU for supporting me it really means a lot! Choosing this tier is great if you like what I do or the music scene i'm in but don't necessarily want to take lessons. Here you can catch up on what I am working on and who I am working with. I will create exclusive content for you that wont be posted on social media.

- A quick overview video what I am up to each month.

Here you get to learn from me in patreon exclusive lessons!

I will be focusing on my influences and creating 4 lessons a month reflecting this.
For now I will create a Pedal Steel Lesson, followed by an Electric Guitar & Slide Guitar Lesson each month.
The 4th lesson will be some extra knowledge on recording tips, how my instruments work, how I get my sound or replicate sounds, the history of the Pedal Steel... the list goes on.

You can expect solo ideas made by me for you to use and deconstructed solos from the likes of: Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Tom Petty, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Ry Cooder to name a few... basically anything 60s-70s Country/Rock to modern Americana Solos.
I also want to focus on B-Bender Telecaster parts and how you can create these with or without a B-Bender Guitar.

These videos come with Tablature hand written for you to practice.

This is the full package! 

Along with the 4 videos I upload each month, you get to have a 1 to 1 lesson with me. This takes place using Zoom but I can use different apps such as Facetime if that suits you. 

Just as a side note I'll always do my best to re arrange lessons if you cant make them within the month. If possible i'll double up on a month if you cant make the previous months lesson.

  • 1 to 1 30 minute Zoom Lesson (online) each Month.

About

Hi, my name is CJ Hillman and I am a Pedal Steel Guitarist & Electric Guitarist based in London, England.

I am a live and studio session musician and play with the likes of Billy Bragg, Yola, Ethan Johns & The Black Eyed Dogs and Laura Marling to name a few and have been lucky enough to guest with artist such as Graham Nash, Kris Kristofferson and Buddy Miller & Jim Lauderdale playing Pedal Steel Guitar. I am a member of the Americana Awards U.K. House Band and have been awarded 'Multi Instrumentalist Of The Year' in 2017 & 2019.

A side from being a session player I also teach my instruments and create my own music (I am currently working on a debut album). This is the content I will be offering to you as well as extra videos from my live work.
