Hello there o/ 

I'm Joobie. This is my guitar string fund. I make music, Youtube videos, and other similar art type things. Often with a "nerdy" tinge, I suppose. As I focus more and more on doing something with music, I find that guitar strings get burnt through like firewood(Go figure, tracking guitar a lot, often times for 6 hours a day, tends to wear them out a bit). The situation multiplies when your main instrument, and tool for making music, just happens be an 8-string guitar. Kind of a lot of strings, and they're pretty hard to find and extra pricey too. Seems like just getting coated strings when I have some extra funds, or during a holiday, or a birthday, might not be enough. I find myself with strings that won't play a single note in-tune and have zero sustain, for months at a time. And sadly a couple of my instruments simply get neglected for strings.

So I'm making a note to do what I can to get out, and stay out, of this situation. I'm not asking anyone else to help out, that's their own decision to make, and I respect whatever decision that is fully. You do your thing, that's great. But I'm gonna keep doing my thing too. As I'm fairly determined to spend my life making fun, silly, light-hearted, and maybe slightly stupid art for other people to enjoy in spite of some of the more chaotic aspects of life. And if what I do is something somebody gets something out of, and they want to see me keep doing my thing, right on. A pair of decent strings is more than enough to keep the steam going for me. New strings will keep me playing in tune, and focusing on the music, rather than spending lots of time trying to salvage some solid sounds out of some really gross sounding guitar strings(gross is not a sound I find myself often going for in music). So that's the goal. And it's cool if it's a small piece of your goal too, maybe. If not, that's totally cool. No skin off my nose. But I hope my silly music and art won't get in your way, cause it's probably here to stay if I have any say it it.

Thanks for your time, all.

Tiers
Single String Tier
$1 or more per month 0 patrons
About the price of a single string. Giving thanks to this tier with early access to final versions of songs the day they before they come out.
1/2 Pack Tier
$5 or more per month 0 patrons
About a half a pack of strings. Giving thanks to this tier with early access to final versions of songs while I work on the music video.
1 Pack Tier
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
This is a little bit less than than a basic pack of guitar strings. I'd say a big thanks to this tier with sneak previews to works in progress, and the $1 & $5 rewards.
2 Pack Tier
$20 or more per month 0 patrons
This is about the cost of 2 packs of basic guitar strings. People contributing this amount would remove the issue of running low on strings at all. Giving most all I can manage back as thanks with the 1$, 5$, and $10 tier rewards, as well as touched up B-side tracks.
Goals
$0 of $25 per month
This would allow me to keep a few of my most important instruments always well strung up. At this goal I'd say thanks by hosting atleast one monthly re-string and guitar maintenance live-stream where I check the action, intonation, and truss rod of a instrument and demonstrate how I do things and tips and tricks.
