WHO?

Hi folks, my name is Mark McGuigan I'm a musician and guitar teacher from Scotland who loves to geek out about the guitar, I've been obsessed with the instrument since I started playing way back in the 90s.

In 2006 I quit my day job as a software engineer and started teaching guitar and bass full time, around about the same time I started up the mastertheguitar youtube channel which offers free guitar lesson and guitar gear demo content such as the MasterThatRiff! and MasterThatLick! video lesson series and the MasterThatGear! demo videos.

The past 7 years I've been busy being a Dad, balancing family life with teaching and content creation but now that both my boys are of school age I'm eager to get back to creating more regular and higher quality lessons etc. This is where Patreon and you guys come in.

WHY SHOULD YOU BE A PATRON?

Patreon is a fantastic way for YOU guys to get involved with what I do, become a part of what content is created and get access to cool extras. Together we'll create some new exciting content as well as improve current lesson and gear videos and in doing so, I hope, we'll build up a great guitar related community where we can all inform and benefit each other as players and musicians.

By becoming a Patron you will gain access to Patreon exclusive content such as:

  • $1 For the Players!
Ideal for those who want to show appreciation for what I'm doing in this big wide World for just a buck a month! You'll get access to the all transcriptions (in pdf and Guitar Pro format) as well as Line 6 HELIX patches for any guitars tones used and exclusive Q&A access including behind the scenes content for an inside look on what goes on at mastertheguitar.

  • $2 For the Heroes!
If you would like to throw in another $1 you'll instantly be a Hero in my book! As such you will have a say in what content gets created with lesson requests etc. Any video/lesson you help to create I will very gratefully give you a shout out and namecheck with my most utmost thanks.

  • $5 For the Legends!
This is now, in my opinion, a pretty decent amount to be contributing a month when you consider all our outgoing these days. For such Legendary status you will get access to all audio files related to content be it backing tracks, songs, practice loops etc. as well as access to expanded lesson content including handouts, practice tips and advice.

WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THE MONEY?

Of course being a musician these days require multiple income streams and like everyone else there are bills to pay and overheads. To be frank if I was in it for 'the money' I would have stayed working as a Software Engineer!

Quite simply ALL money from your Patronage will be invested in making better quality and more regular content for YOU.

THANK YOU!

Thank you for taking the time to read this (if you have made it this far :D) if you are considering getting involved please check out the perks and if you do indeed decide to become part of the mastertheguitar Patreon community you have my enduring thanks and I can't wait for us to continue to create awesome guitar content.
