Welcome and Thank You for your interest in joining my exclusive community of Patrons right here on Patreon!

A Little About Me

My name is Eric Beaty, and I'm a guitarist and video creator on YouTube. I'm mainly known for my Bluegrass guitar lessons and videos. So far, I've been able to amass a following of over 13,000 subscribers and around 3 Million views. I'm so grateful for the ability to help others with their frustrations in learning to increase their skills playing the guitar.

Why I've Started a Patreon Page

While videos are a great outlet for education, what I really want to be doing is creating new music in the form of audio files. So I'll be using Patreon to further my creative desires as a musician instead of a video producer. With this in mind, I'll be able to release some of my lesser-known "vault" content exclusively here on Patreon, including:

  • Unreleased tracks from past demos and albums
  • Experimental music tracks and ideas
  • Live audio recordings of my playing and singing
  • Practice sessions from when I first started learning to play guitar—over 20 years ago!
  • And much more (see rewards packages for details)
(For even more perks, please check out the right side of this page to see the various rewards tiers.)

Other Ideas for Great Content

I also feel that Patreon would be a great fit to launch additional bonus footage of video "extras" such as outtakes, deleted scenes, and additional content. Even occasional live streams and hangouts.

But why stop there? Even though I'm a musician, I am first and foremost a creator. So I'll also be using Patreon to host many of the guitar courses I've created—such as my Bluegrass Guitar Essentials and Texas Blues Guitar. And with access to my project management and idea boards on Trello, you'll get to go behind-the-scenes to see "how the sausage is made."

Thank you so much for deciding to collaborate with me as a creator and artist. I have so many ideas to share here on Patreon, and I can't wait to include you as one of my Patrons.

Here's looking forward to the freedom of creating without limits.
Tiers
Fiddle
$1 or more per month 0 patrons
Rosin that Bow!


In this starter "Fiddle" tier, you'll be granted access to the following exclusive perks for as long as you're a Patron at this level:


  • Exclusive Access to My Patreon Trello Board. Go behind-the-scenes and see where I come up with ideas for Patreon before implementing them on my page. Here, you'll be able to help me decide on new ideas and rewards by voting on your favorites!


  • Early Video Release Notifications. Whenever I upload a relevant (music, guitar, etc.) video on YouTube, I'll give you the release schedule days—sometimes weeks or months—before I release the videos publicly. 


  • Ad-Free Videos. For any exclusive videos I post on Patreon, I'll disable YouTube ads. This way, you can enjoy my videos with blissful un-interruption. The way I see it, since you'll be helping me grow my Patreon community, there's no sense in bombarding you with ads. Everybody wins!
Mandolin
$5 or more per month 0 patrons
Pickin' Up Speed


In the "Mandolin" tier level, it's all about the music!


Here, you'll receive access to exclusive music for as long as you're a Patron at this level, such as:


  • All previous tier perks. Nuff said.


  • Beta Releases of EP and album tracks. When you become a Patron at the "Mandolin" tier level, you'll be giving me an extra push to get more professional quality music out to the public—after you've heard it first, of course.


  • Unreleased Tracks/Recordings from past demos and albums, including Hymns from Home, the never-before released album I collaborated on with Bluegrass picking phenomenon Kenneth Burris. Our YouTube video jam has stayed at #2 on my Top 10 videos of all time for several years and is quickly on its way to receiving 300,000 views!


  • Experimental Music tracks and ideas. I frequently find myself writing new riffs and turning them into tunes. Sometimes they become complete songs, sometimes not. This is the tier you want if you're interested in hearing such experiments.


  • Live Audio Recordings of my playing and singing. Over the years, my wife has recorded me playing and singing in various churches. Up until now, I've only shared these with a few of my close friends and family in CD form. Now, you can access all the songs I have in my collection as I release them here on Patreon!
Guitar
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
Pickin' and Grinnin'


This is where the magic of video happens.


In this, my instrument of choice, the "Guitar" tier level, you'll receive exclusive access to the following for as long as you're a Patron at this level:


  • All previous tier perks. Nuff said.


  • Additional video content. Whenever I create videos with deleted scenes, outtakes, or extra content, here's where I'll be posting them! Also, on occasion, when I record/livestream behind-the-scenes screencasts when recording/transcribing music, creating products, or similar videos, they'll be here as well.


  • NEW PERK: Private Discord Channels. Once you sign up at the "Guitar" tier level, you'll be automatically added to my Discord server and have access to several Patron-only channels. This will give you an inside look into my creation process when I livestream videos.


  • My Totally Free Guitar Newsletter Archive Page. So far, only a select few of my email newsletter subscribers know about this, but when you become a Patron at the "Guitar" tier level, I'll give you the link to the 70+ video lessons I created when I first began sending out newsletters years ago. (Note: These video lessons mostly cover concepts on the electric guitar, not acoustic.)


  • More Trello Boards. Whenever I create a product or have an idea, my first go-to resource is always Trello. Get an inside look at how I run my businesses—and my life—with this amazing tool!

I Dare You to Keep Up!

Luckily, your decision to contribute as a Patron on the "Banjo" tier should be much easier with the custom-made perks I'll be dishing out.

  • All previous tier perks. Nuff said.


  • Fretboard Diagrams and other useful resources I create only for my private students. As a guitar teacher, I find myself covering many of the same topics over and over again. When this happens, I create resources like chord and scale diagrams to help them in their journey toward guitar greatness. At the "Banjo" tier level, you too can learn alongside my students.


  • New Perk: Tablature!That's right, I've decided to start creating tabs based on many of my YouTube videos and overall playing style. They're mainly found on my official tabs page at http://www.bluegrassguitaressentials.com/tabs, but I'll be providing a few of these "tab packs" for you to enjoy from time to time.

Goals
$0 of $100 per month


Regarded for many years as the "Holy Grail" of budget microphones, the Shure SM57 instrument mic is one mic I've never had the privilege of owning.

That all changes once I earn this $100 goal, though. With the use of the SM57, I'll be able to achieve amazing audio quality on future music projects.
