Hello!

Who are you? I'm Matthew, and I want to help you to play guitar. My opinion is that the best way to do this is by learning the songs that you love.

What do you do? I give song lessons on YouTube under the name LeftHandedGuitarist. I present my videos without much talking, I just play the songs along with on-screen chord diagrams. The videos are meant to supplement your other learning methods and are designed as practice tools to help you learn chords. I sometimes show simplified versions of songs for beginners, or I may do intermediate level videos which present the songs as they were originally played. Most importantly, I include information for both right-handers AND LEFT-HANDERS!

What's Patreon all about? My videos will always be free, but they take a lot of time, research and effort to make and I earn very little from them through YouTube. Patreon is a way for you to help support me or say thank you if you find my videos useful. As little as $1 a month from you will make a huge difference to me, and enable me to keep doing this!

What do I get out of it? Besides the good feeling that you've helped support a creator, I have a number of rewards available. You can get access to chord charts for the songs I teach, as well as backing tracks. You can suggest and vote on what artists you'd like to see me do next, download ebook/audio collections, or you can even request a transcription of a song.

Thank you so much for any support you can give!

  • You have some good karma coming your way (maybe!).


  • Priority Q&A: message me with any questions and get detailed responses ASAP above non-patrons.


  • Access to printable chord charts for new videos (starting from January 2016). These have chord diagrams in both right-handed and left-handed versions, and suggested strum patterns where appropriate.


  • Recommended Stuff - I'll post interesting videos I've discovered online, or talk about the music I've been listening to with reviews and recommendations. Plus, because I'm a geek I'll also talk about about the films, TV shows, books and video games I've been enjoying.

  • All of the above.


  • You're feeling more generous and are a pretty lovely person whom everyone likes.


  • Download the backing tracks (MP3) that I use in my videos (starting from March 2017 lessons). These do take me some time to make, and I get enough requests for them that I've decided to include them here.

 

  • Video lesson voting! In the second half of each month, you can vote on the artist suggestions that people have made and I will make lessons for the top 3 during the following month (my own song choice).

  • All of the above.


  • You're really one of the kindest people around.


  • LHG Chord Book Volume 1 (2016-2018). This e-book has all of the song chord charts I've made to accompany my video lessons in one easy file. It will be kept up to date as I make new lesson videos. Available in both right-handed and left-handed versions.

  • You really like what I'm doing and want to help me out, and you're awesome.

 

  • Download the Guitar Pro 7 files of the backing tracks I make (from March 2017 onward). These are raw and unedited, and will give you an idea of how I make them.


  • Backing track collection. Download all of the backing tracks I've made so far collected together in convenient .zip files. MP3 format. This will be updated every month or so.

  • Custom chord chart. Want to learn your favourite song? I will put together a high quality chord chart of a song of your choice. Please contact me beforehand (Twitter/Facebook/YouTube) so we can discuss your song choice and exactly what you need. One song per patron/month.
Goals
$48 of $100 per month
If we reach this goal, I will go back and make chord charts for all of my older video lessons, pre-2016, and make them available to Patrons (both as individual sheets, and compiled as another e-book).
