What to expect:

Description:

Level 8 continues to introduce more advanced pieces, this time focusing on developing consistency in more advanced pieces and techniques. Here you will work on developing an even, controlled tremolo, as well as seamlessly navigating from one position to the neck. As these techniques are introduced you will continue to focus on ensuring that both hands are synchronized, relaxed, and controlled.

Skills covered:

  • artificial harmonics
  • tremolo (right hand)
  • advanced scales
  • advanced arpeggios (right hand)
  • applying theory to repertoire
  • shifting and synchronization

  • Happy enough to have a go at these pieces. Two or three I have played already but the rest will be a challenge. I know they are just suggestions so I will still float around this level and lower. I note Un dia de November crops up in Levels 6, 7, and 8! Some pieces will cross levels and be difficult to categorise due to differences in the various sections, I suppose.

    Since I joined tonebase I've always felt beginner/intermediate lessons were a little outnumbered by advanced ones. I think this attempt at recategorising with more levels is likely to prove better for me. Thanks

    I was assigned (if that is the appropriate term here) to Level 8 which feels reasonable to me. I play several of these pieces and feel I could comfortably play others, though there are some that would certainly present challenges for me. I hope that TB will be able to eventually classify their entire collection which would help to clarify levels and help us, the members. find appropriate repertoire as well as appropriate challenges.

    I have usually referred to Guitarburst, which goes up to level 20, for help in approaching new repertoire. It is nice to have a new option for that. Also, it seems Guitarburst is no longer expanding their repertoire.

    Thanks for this new addition to the program.

  • lol This is enough repertoire to keep me busy for the next 3 years. If I quit my job I might make it to level 9, maybe? (jk no intention of quitting my day job). 

     

    Well, looks like I have my work cut out for me! Thanks for the guidance!

    Thank you providing this level approach for developing guitar playing! I have a couple of questions:

    1. Is the list of courses to be followed in the order that they are presented or can we pick and choose from the course list in any order?

    2. I see that these courses are meant to address specific skills. Why weren’t courses that cover specific technical skills (not tied to a specific guitar piece) also listed? I would like to cover those first before I focus on a specific musical piece.

      Bill Dour Hi Bill! The courses above are currently presented in alphabetical order. The beauty of tonebase is that you get to choose which repertoire you'd like to work on, in the order that you like and based on your own musical preferences! So feel free to pick and choose and spend as much time as you need on any one of those.

      As for your second question, we are planning to also categorize technique lessons into levels.  Stay tuned for those! However, technique courses are inherently more difficult to pin down, since a single lesson can address everything from the very basics of a given technique all the way up to some quite advanced implementations. Therefore, expect technique lessons to be assigned multiple levels at the same time.

  • Hi everyone!

    Tonebase content is amazing! Once more I have to say: I'm really really happy for the opportunity of being here. 

    I have a question about the level system. Is it recommended to play/learn everything in one level before going to the next one? If not, when do you know you are ready to advance? 

    Thanks!

      Michael Pupo Hi Michael, thank you for your kind words!

      It's totally up to you, but I'd personally optimize for the pieces you'd most like to learn, instead of going through piece in each level exhaustively. You might also like to try looking around the level that you were given by the level quiz - sometimes, you'll find music that fits your taste and inspires you in those neighboring levels.

      It's really important to prioritize music you'd like to learn, rather than music you feel like you should learn, because playing music you love is going to help maintain your motivation levels up much better. That's much more important than playing everything at the "right" difficulty level.

    • Mircea Good advice. Thank you! I was focused on what I should play instead of what I'd like to play indeed. But I will follow your suggestion and I'm sure it will be much more fun to play and practice now. Motivation is important too. Thanks for this insight.

  • Hello. I signed up because I was told someone here could teach me how to use Reaper to record my guitar. Did I sign for the wrong course? Can anybody help?
