Hey all, I'm Dave Muto, and thanks so much for visiting my Patreon! I'm a rock/metal guitarist in NYC who also has a passion for video games and is hugely inspired by composers like Nobuo Uematsu, Koji Kondo, and Inon Zur, as well as guitarists like Van Halen, Aj Minette & Dean Herrara, Mark Okubo, and Dimebag Darrell.

I started my YouTube page a few years ago and casually released videos every few months, but since becoming a full time musician, composer, and teacher, I've decided to kick it up a notch and start releasing video game cover songs, as well as guitar lesson tutorial videos on a monthly basis (one of each a month at first, hopefully more frequently as time goes on.)

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and visit my page. I hope my tunes bring you at least a couple of minutes of joy when you listen to them, and whether or not you decide to become a patron, I look forward to making music for you :)

You liked what you saw, and you thought "Hey, lemme throw this guy a bone (dollar.) Maybe you thought "I wish he'd cover this song from this game and/or band. Lemme give him a dollar and see if he does." Good news, I will! As a $1 tier supporter, if you'd like a song covered, your request gets priority over anyone in the comments section on YouTube. You also gain early access to videos, are allowed to take place in polls, as well as sneak peaks on anything that's in development!
Supporter
$5 or more per month
You like the channel, and want to hear a song you like covered. $5 supporters can recommend a song via direct message, and I'll cover it once the queue is clear (no song voted on by patrons, etc.) Songs requested by $5 patrons get priority over songs requested by $1 patrons, as well as all benefits of the $1 tier.

You consider yourself a fan. You like the channel, you want to hear a song you like covered, and are interested in the process. $10 patrons' song recommendations have priority over $5 patrons, and also have access to demos of whatever tracks I'm working on at the time. The finished product will be on YouTube, but I'll send you demos, and even isolated tracks (if you'd like to hear just the bass line or guitar solo, for example,) throughout the writing and recording process.

Ok, we've established you're a fan. You like the channel, you want to hear a song you like covered, and are interested in the process, and now that you've heard the demos I sent you, you're thinking "I bet I could do this if I had charts or tablature.". Cool, I want to help you get there. Those demos I sent you? You can have the charts for them. I'll write them up as tablature or sheet music, and for any song you request. If you're interested in having someone help you learn them, take a look at the next tier.

Oh, and songs you suggest have a higher priority than $10 partrons,

You wanna take it to the next level. You like the channel, you want to hear a song like you covered, are interested in the process, and you want to put those charts I sent you to work. Maybe you also want to learn a few things on guitar in general. $30 patrons have all of the perks of being a $20 patrons, including higher priority for song selection, and if they so choose, are entitled to one half hour lesson with me over Skype, or if you live in the NYC area, in person per month. Lessons can be scheduled any time from the beginning to the end of the month, and can be cancelled or rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice.

Something's different. That guitar you bought a few months ago because you needed a hobby is starting to take on a whole new meaning, and you think it's because of this channel. You like the channel, you want to hear a song like you covered, are interested in the process, and want to learn more than a few things on guitar. $40 patrons have all of the perks of being a $30 patrons, including higher priority for song selection, and are entitled, if they so choose, to one 45 minute lesson with me over Skype, or if you live in the NYC area, in person per month. Lessons can be scheduled any time from the beginning to the end of the month, and can be cancelled or rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice.
ABOUT THAT LIFE
$50 or more per month
Things have changed. You need to be reminded to eat, sleep, and go to work because, damn it, you play guitar so f#$%ing much that you're arranging YOUR OWN covers. Whatever you're doing, this channel was the catalyst for your ascension to the new you. Without your support, none of this would be possible, so you get all the perks of of the previous tiers, and are entitled to a one hour lesson with me over Skype or in person if you live in the NYC area, and if you feel like you're up to it, we can collaborate on a track together, meaning you'll be featured in the video!
Goals
$124 of $200 per month
With $200 dollars a month, I may be able to pay a professional cameraman or video editor to help move the process along a little quicker, and produce better, more frequent content!
