  • Oh, this is awesome! I'm a beginner, so I wanted to start with the easiest pieces first!

      Elizabeth No. 2 would be a great starting point for you, especially since we have a brand new release with TY on that!

      I would put No.3 more in between easy and medium since it does require a good knowledge of the upper fretboard!

      No.4, 6 and 10 should be perfectly doable! So glad to have you on board for this challenge, let me know if I or fellow tonebase users can help you with something, this challenge is about motivating and inspiring each other!

  • Thanks, Martin, this is very helpful. Number 9 (which I love) seems to be missing from the difficulty chart. Where would you put it? I'd say either easy or medium.

      Eric Phillips  Your eye for detail! 👓 I‘ll update the Etude Guide with No.9, but I‘d put it probably in medium  as well for the slurs and the shifts, those need special attention and careful fingering!
