What courses would you like to see next on tonebase Guitar?

Dear tonebuddies!

Every once in a while, we want to check in with you and ask what courses you would like to see next, or what you feel is missing on tonebase Guitar!

I would also like to update you on a few upcoming releases. Without spoiling the fun of anticipation, I hope 🤭

From another major course with Carlos Bonell on Sightreading, Arranging, and Practicing, we'll have a fantastic lesson with Jan Depreter and the iconic Danza Espanola Nr. 5 for you. Closing out in April. we release an enigmatic repertoire with Thomas Viloteau, which revolves all around harmonics.

All that being said, is there anything you feel is missing? Are there certain courses, or artists you cannot get enough of? We are all ears when it comes to your needs and suggestions, so please feel free to share and discuss what you would like to see next on tonebase!

    I would like to see content on harmony in classical guitar, fretboard knowledge, and a general course on harmony to better understand the pieces. All applied with practical examples on the guitar.

       agreed! I actually wonder if a guitar-specific series could be done, perhaps even with some cross-over to either figured bass or/and jazz lead sheets, but esp. geared towards implementing classical harmony theory on the fretboard in a systematic way a la McFadden but guided by a master instructor. Something separate from the existing piano/guitar combo course on ToneBase; just guitar. There is a lot out there on keyboard harmony, but the fretboard harmony material seems more difficult to penetrate without some guidance.

      David A session or two with Peter Croton, a lutenist who has written a book on the realization of figured bass for guitarists, would be great. Judging from interviews I've seen on YT, he's a gifted pedagogue who would likely enjoy the ToneBase format.

  • Great suggestions. I'd really like to see a lesson Henze's Drei Tentos. Also, some shorter pieces like Brouwer's Preludios Epigramaticos and more of Ponce's Preludes and Torroba Castles.

    Dear tone base team, I would really love to find a tutorial on Roland Dyens famous piece "Indifference" (especially I am not sure how to play the dedillo part...)

  • Hi Martin,

     

    Can we get a course on Granados’ Valse Poeticos? Or A. Barrios’ Serenata Morisca?

    Hi, everyone, all are great ideas! I would also like to see  jazz harmonies, some quartal harmony ideas, extended chords, percussive applications and voice leading workshops, not meaning to sound too greedy 🤷🏼

    Dear Tonebase, 

    I would would like to suggest a course on sitting positions with guitar supports like Guitarlift,  Ergoplay and others. I know a guitar position is an individual thing, however there could be some general guidelines, especialy from maestros who use such supports. I feel such a topic would be beneficial to me as well as my students and others. Thank you.

    • Ravi It's not a full lesson but Borbala Seres just posted a short video on this topic this morning in response to a question. It was very helpful for me. https://youtu.be/Ln77wBF0nDM

  • Hi Martin,

    a series about Legnani's Caprices with Borbala Seres would be awesome! While we have a Carlevaro's group that be great to have someone like Eduardo Fernandez about the Preludios Amerciano and as something more underground but very valuable would be Jacques Hétu's Suite Op.41 with Alvaro Pierri, it was composed for him while they were both teaching at the same location.

    • Blaise Laflamme  Legnani's Caprices with Borbala Seres would be awesome. Her lessons on what you can do with repertoire on the "simpler" side of the spectrum are game changers. It's nice to learn you can have the potential of creating great music without playing the warhorses.

    I would like to see some Alexandre Tansman added.  Specifically Danza Pomposa and Alla polaca.  He seems to have been completely missed from Tonebase.

    I have a few modern composers and a couple of less modern composers to suggest.

    Bogdanovic    7 Easier Polymetric Studies or any other from his huge catalog.

    Gilardino    any of his (60) Trascendenza Studi or ...(see above)

    Ourkouzounov    too many to list

    Allan Willcocks (Tilmann Hoppstock)     12 studies for Guitar, esp. #10

    Sauguet    Soliloque

     Transcriptions:

    Ravel    Oiseaux Tristes, Empress, Pavane(s), etc.

    Rameau     Many possibilities

    Chopin    Mazurkas, Preludes, Waltzes

    Dowland    Fantasias

    That is probably enough for now. 🙂

    Oh yes...

    Possibly having Marcin Dylla and/or Lorenzo Michelli give lessons, livestreams, workshops etc

    OK, now it's enough... for now.

    • Jack Stewart I second the Bogdanovic. I'm glad you reminded me of these. I worked on Reversible Cowboy and Blues that Escher built for awhile but I think they got buried in the pile at some point.
