Welcome to my Donations page!

I hope that you have enjoyed...

…the free articles, lesson videos, backing tracks, downloads and advice on this site!

Perhaps I have answered your questions via Facebook, Twitter or YouTube?
These free resources took over a year for me to make. I spent a lot of money on equipment, software etc and dedicated a lot of my time that could have been spent elsewhere. Saying that, I am happy to create useful content for you, as I want to build an amazing site for people all over the world to use, regardless of their income.

The reality is, unfortunately, that I have bills to pay – just like everybody else. Donations that you make to this site, however small, will enable me to put other work aside and dedicate more time to working on the site, creating useful new videos, backing tracks, downloads and articles for you.

Still FREE!

Friends have suggested that I should give a few things away for free, then charge people to use the rest of the content on the site. This is not how I want things to be! I have ideas for hundreds more lesson videos, articles and backing tracks, which I can’t wait to share with you! I am also happy to answer your questions via Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Please appreciate that this requires a lot of time, effort and expense on my part. So, if:

  • You enjoyed my free lesson videos
  • My hard work has inspired you in some way
  • You think my resources have improved you as a musician
  • You’re using my backing tracks to solo over for practice or live performance
  • You think my effort is worth at least the equivalent of a guitar lesson
  • You think you’ve gained some value thanks to my efforts
  • You think it would be sad if these resources were no longer available…

…then please take the time to donate. All contributions, no matter how small, will be gratefully accepted!
