Keep the Tips For Guitar Playing Success podcast going!

On April 9th, 2020 I launched my new Tips For Guitar Playing Success podcast. It's been a wonderful opportunity to share in greater detail my ideas, tips and tricks to help new, emerging and experienced guitarists reach their guitar playing dreams!

This free weekly podcast is an extension of my Thursday Tips which I've been sharing, every single week, for more than 8 years ~ that's over 415 tips!

But, what is free for you to download is not free for me to create, produce, record, and edit. That's why, as an independent podcaster, the support I receive from listeners like you helps me to continue producing and airing high quality episodes week in and week out. 

If you enjoy listening to and learning from this show, I hope you'll consider joining my Patron's Program. Your contribution will help to support the continuation of the Tips For Guitar Playing Success podcast.

There are several donation levels (see the Patron's Rewards listed on this page) and, as a bonus,  you'll receive some cool, member only rewards like early previews of my Guitar Friends interviews, exclusive access to my Patron's Group on Facebook where I'll host monthly live events, and there's more! 

Please take a moment to explore the Rewards and then choose a level that excites you.

Thank you for your support, and as I like to say,

Play on...
