If you’ve been following what I’ve been up to recently, you’ve probably noticed I haven’t been releasing that much music lately. My last video was Mhysa and that was way back in April!
The fact is that I’ve had a hard time finding the time to work on my music. As some of you already know, my family and I just went through a big move, and that took a lot of my time.
But beyond that, now that we have two kids I have a lot more responsibilities. Between making sure I can pay the rent each month and spending time with my family, I haven’t been able to work that much on my music, much less release new videos.
So I thought I’d try a little experiment using Patreon, to see if I can get things going again with a little bit of your help.
Patreon is like Kickstarter thrown on its head…instead of asking for a large amount of money for a big project beforehand, I ask your for a small amount each time I create a video. It can be as little as 1 dollar, or as much you’d like. And depending on how much you pay, you get different rewards. You can check out my Patreon page to see all of the rewards.
The idea is that with your support, I’ll be able to dedicate more time to making more videos. The more support I get, the less I have to worry about getting paying gigs and the more I can spend on doing this.
It will also give me more time to do stuff for you…more tutorials, more tabs. And to do them right away, not months or years after I record a song!
No matter what, I’ll always play guitar and make music…it’s what I do. But with a little bit of your help, I can allow it to take a bigger part of my life again, which will let me put out more videos more often. Which hopefully is what you want as well! :-)
What’s Coming Up:
Just to give you an idea of what I have planned, the next two videos will be of Orestes by A Perfect Circle and the music from The Legend of Korra. The arrangements are all worked out and I can already play them… It’s just a matter of sitting down and recording them.
And here are the covers that are on my to do list:
H and Schism (Tool)
No Quarter (Led Zep/Tool)
Rooster (Alice in Chains)
A Fair Judgement (Opeth)
Man Of Steel soundtrack
We Are (Karnivool)
And these are on the maybe list:
Weak & Powerless (A Perfect Circle)
Man In The Box (Alice In Chains)
My Wave (Soundgarden)
Legend Of Zelda
So if any of that sounds like something you’d like to hear, please consider supporting me. Even if it’s just a dollar, it’s still a huge help.
