Hello everybody. My name is Shaun, I'm a primary school teacher and a musician. I live in Western Australia in a city called Fremantle.

I'm on Patreon because it allows me to quickly build and contribute to a community with content that is unique, useful and easy to follow, whether you want to learn to play an instrument, or sing. I'm hoping that with Patreon I'll be able to contribute more hours to this community that I have a zillion ideas for, but don't have the time to create.

What is Guitar By The Glass? Learning guitar should be a fun shared experience of jamming, singing, and drinking with other people (you don't have to drink). Every week I take my guitar down to my local pub where I lead a guitar circle. We drink, sing and laugh while we learn new songs. If you don't get it the first week, you'll get it next week, or the next. 
I take a lot of time charting out songs. They need to be correct, easy to read, and easy to follow. I have written 6x 50 page guitar songbooks, which I do not profit from, it is for the convenience of all having the same song charts to follow together. 

I have a YouTube page with about 1000 subscribers, and a Facebook group and page that are very active. My goal on these mediums is to create an atmosphere where you feel like you're included in the community. Each week, you'll pour yourself a little something, sit down and jam along with my weekly video(s) and chord charts. 

As an exclusive Patreon member, you'll have access to my chord charts that I release each week, also an exclusive weekly video lesson. Higher tier members get access to the books I've created and a website page that has all of my song charts and books in a table with download links, also I record jam sessions so you can sit down and play along with us.

I don't have a lot of time to create videos and content, but I'm hoping that with support from my Patreon page I'll be able to spend more time creating them, because I really love doing it.

I would like to have the time to reboot my podcast. I did 27 episodes, I enjoyed it but it lacked direction, especially since I started the YouTube channel - there was too much overlap.

Since then I've put a lot of thought into what it should be, and I think I have the answer - a podcast that you can strum along with. It would help you with strumming patterns, solos, scales, and obviously songs. I got a lot of feedback from people saying they loved that it always had a live song at the end too, so it would still have that. I would also upload any resources that come along with it.
