I'm a guitar teacher living and working in the Triangle region of North Carolina, and for the past two years, I've also been able to reach intermediate and advanced players around the world through my 100% ad-free YouTube channel. I make my own arrangements and original lessons, transcribe unusual selections, offer gear demos and music theory tutorials, and host livestreams to address frequently asked questions. With fifteen years of full-time instruction experience, I'm able to break complex lessons up into concrete, digestible portions. My subscribers and fans enjoy our shared musical taste, the cozy warmth of my living room, and my calm and gentle demeanor. Once upon a time, a commenter referred to me as "the Bob Ross of guitar," and the name stuck.

Thus far, I've been able to keep my channel free of commercials by selling tablature in my online store. As the channel has improved, however, it's just a reality that it takes more of my time. I'm proud to now have multiple cameras, crisper lenses, fatter sound, and fancier tabs with standard notation. It's a mutually beneficial and growing thing--the channel is my favorite part of my job, and I hope to use Patreon to further supplement my income, giving me more flexibility to keep creating great original content.
“Eric, I have been playing guitar for a while now (14 years—that’s half my life) and have always felt like I stopped making progress a long time ago. This YouTube lesson has completely opened up my playing. The way you communicate notes relative to chord shapes and positions is wonderful. I was stuck playing up and down minor blues scales, trying to solo over blues progressions, and it always sounded bland. With 30 minutes of following through a couple of your videos, I feel like I can play the way I always dreamed of playing. Please, please, please keep posting these wonderful lessons."    -YouTube comment, August 11, 2017

Tiers
Hive Five
$2 or more per month

Supporters at every level keep my videos 100% free of advertising! Please enjoy my undying gratitude as well as the sweet sense of accomplishment that you are helping my 150k monthly viewers click directly to my content, bypassing unrelated and time-wasting commercials for cat food, car insurance, and prescription drugs. Everybody wins! 

Don't Forget the Tabs
$5 or more per month

As an incentive to keep you practicing consistently, every month I'll email you a $3 coupon code redeemable on my website. Help yourself to any tablature file of your choice, available immediately as a PDF download. Learn a new song every month, and give yourself a big pat on the back!

VIP Lounge
$8 or more per month

We are trying something a little different with this one:

  • You'll get the $3 coupon code every month, same as above.
  • I'll also offer a VIP livestream event each month, via Patreon and Crowdcast. This is your chance to ask all those nitty gritty questions about gear, tone, music theory, whatever. Since we'll have a smaller group than on YouTube, I should have more time to individually address and explore your questions!
Sampler Pack
$12 or more per month

Try a little of everything:  

  • My undying gratitude. 
  • A $6 coupon code every month, redeemable on my website, where you can instantly download any 2 tablature files of your choice, with hundreds to choose from and more added every week. 
  • VIP livestream access every month.
  • A copy of my EP! "Runes" is being released in February 2019 and features six original songs, a $6 value.
The Eric Haugen Grand Buffet
$35 or more per month

Have it all:  

  • My undying gratitude (obviously). 
  • A $12 coupon code every month, redeemable on my website, where you can instantly download any 4 tablature files of your choice. 
  • VIP livestream access every month.
  • A copy of my EP! "Runes" is being released in February 2019 and features six original songs, a $6 value.
  • When you sign up, we'll also send you a sweet Eric Haugen Guitar t-shirt, designed and hand-printed by my lovely wife, owner and operator of Flytrap Clothing! The shirts are a super soft tri-blend fabric you'll enjoy wearing--no cheapie promotional stuff here. We'll contact you to find out your size prior to shipment. (Available in unisex S-XXL.)
Goals
20% complete
This one is a really ambitious goal, but well begun is half done! I currently commute five days a week to teach in my office in downtown Carrboro, NC, but I'd love to cut that down to four. (The traffic!) When I reach this goal, I can use Thursdays to work from home, teaching lessons online and editing videos!
