Hello, one and all! If you've taken the step to click on a link to this page, it's fair to say that I already like you quite a bit, but as you're not a captive audience yet, why don't I tell you who I am, and why I'm doing this?

7 years ago I quit working for the man. It probably wasn't the most calculated move (living in London it was essentially suicide!), but somehow over the last 7 years, I've managed to do alright for myself. I've completed over 1000 music/guitar transcriptions for various websites and publications and held an amazing position at LickLibrary and Guitar Interactive Magazine which has seen me released DVDs, meet my childhood heroes, and travel the world.

So What's Changed?

Well, in all honesty, nothing. I still love all of the people I work for and will continue to do so as long as I'm required. However, in recent months I've come to wonder if there's not more of myself I can put out there, not what someone else wants me to be, but who I am.... and I think the answer is yes!

I absolutely live for education and entertainment, but at the same time, my sense of humor doesn't always sit well with clients or advertisers. While I completely understand this, I don't want to ever find myself in a position where I'm censoring what I think or feel to secure a paycheck (To be clear, this hasn't happened, but I can absolutely see it happening at some point!).

I want to be here to tell you what I think, expose scumbags, devote my time to you... but also feed my family, so to Patreon we go!

I'm a huge fan of Patreon as a platform as it's a direct way for me to connect with you, my friends, fans, and students. I've seen incredible success come to people I follow such as Jim Sterling, and Dick Masterson (who I've been a Patron of since day 1!) among others. Being here able to make the content that you want, and not hoping someone else will pay me to is the dream, and it'll allow me to do even more of it.


What Can You Get?

In terms of what I can offer you in return for your patronage, there are many options.

  • $1 per month or more
Patrons of any level will get access to my exclusive Patreon feed where I'll share updates on what I'm up to, along with videos of things I'm working on. Just being able to watch what I do, and how I do it, should prove invaluable to your own transcriptions.

  • $5 per month or more
If you want to give me $5 a month, you'll get access to the "Transcription Challenge". I'll pick out 3 challenges a month, a beginner, intermediate, and advanced track or video, and we'll all transcribe them. When the challenge period is over, I'll take all of your transcriptions and we can compare them to my work to see which areas of your skills need improvement.

  • $10 per month or more
At this level you'll get access to my Patreon feed and the Transcription Challenge, and I'll credit you at the end of Youtube videos I make while you're supporting me.

  • $20 per month or more
At this level you'll get access to my Patreon feed and the Transcription Challenge, you'll be credited in videos and you'll get to make requests of content you want me to create. If there's a guy on YouTube you want me to do a video on, I'll aim my sights at them (assuming I take issue with their content). If you want a lesson video, you'll get it. If you want me to talk about a subject in a vlog, you'll get it. 

  • $50 per month or more
Here you'll get access to all previous perks, and I'll sit down with you once a month on Skype and we can get to work on making you the player or transcriber you want to be. Alternatively this could act as a mentoring session, or we can just shoot the breeze while I thank you profusely for being so supportive.

What Are You Doing With The Money?

Transparency is everything to me. I'm incredibly lucky to be able to do as much as I already do, but I'm not in it to get rich! This page isn't for me to have an ever increasing wage to retire on. While I absolutely have overheads I need to cover, I live for my work (as you can see from the time stamps on most of my transcribing videos), so once I'm sure I'm not going to be evicted or starve, all money I make is constantly being reinvested into making more content of better quality.

These things include, second (and even third) cameras for filming better multi angle content. Microphones for voice capture on live videos. Computer upgrades to handle the capture of so many inputs. Designers and animators to improve videos. Supporting my Amazon shopping habits (all these books add up!).

So, if you're still reading this and want to support me, then check out the perks on the right. Alternatively you can support me via one off payments on Paypal at the following link.
