I’m on Patreon!
I am creating recordings “for guitarists” – that is, taking popular or well known music and really amping up the guitar sound (so to speak). First two songs will be Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” and The National’s “Rains of Castamere” from Game of Thrones. These will be licensed recordings available for purchase from this website – or available to my Patrons.

Motivique is on Twitter – you should be too!
Greetings everyone! We’re heading in to 2019 and it was time to change my direction a bit.
I’m still on Patreon, but I’m going to use that to benefit my recording projects.
My recording projects are based on licensing well known songs – either songs that are already guitar centric or chart top songs and turnng them into guitar centric versions and then offering them for MP3 purchase on this site. The first 4 songs I’m recording for sale are:
Ariana Grand: Thank U Next
The National: The Rains of Castamere (Game of Thrones)
Cat Stevens: The Wind
The Beatles: Blackbird
Again, please bear in mind that I’m turning these into guitar centric versions – think of when Chet Atkins used to turn movie themes and pop songs into instrumental guitar pieces and you’re on the right track.
One other new approach is more directly integrating my social media accounts – primarily Youtube, Twitter, Instragram, and Tumblr, along with this website. I’ll be using Instragram to create a timeline of lessons and information for students to have access to to get refreshers on details from class. I’ll record these on Instragram but post them as a running timeline on this website.
To find my various Social Media:
And that’s what’s changed here. I hope everyone is having a good end to 2018 – may 2019 be the year you want it to be!
I have definitely not disappeared, but being a new home-owner has kept us busy – it is finally settling down to where we can enjoy it, but the first couple months was quite a change.
Something I’ve never really addressed is an RSS feed url – if you would like to add this website to your feed or feed organizer, please add: michaeltillman.com/feed/
Also, of late I have been working on a Patreon page. Granted, the initial impetus is guitar lessons. However, it also affords a couple other things – via Patreon, you will receive recordings from me on a regular basis. If you are here, there must be something yo like about my music, so that doesn‘t seem too presumptuous. In addition, a group goal of the Patreon is to afford donating instruments to area youth organizations, and if we develop enough support, eventually founding a college scholarship for music education. This is in the future, of course, but it doesn’t take that much too accomplish, if people participate.
The Patreon already exists, but it will be launched more publicly on July 1. Please message me if you would like more details. If you are interested in supporting my efforts to bring music, instruments, and music education to others, please read here:
The page is up, but I haven’t been public about a launch as of yet.
Love to all of you today!
Michael and the studio at Motivique.
Good evening everyone. I had a successful concert at the Kessler last weekend and this weekend head up to Lubbock for my first ticketed house concert. I have also started laying groundwork for one in Dallas, but we have to pick a date as of yet. If you want a home concert for your group, friends or family, please get in touch! (Either click the contact tab on the webpage or email me at MichaelHenryTillman@Mail.com).
“But Michael, what does it sound like?”
Exactly like this –
