Level 8 - List Of Pieces (+ Discussion Space)
What to expect:
Within level 8 you will find lessons that introduce more advanced techniques like tremolo, artificial harmonics
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.
- artificial harmonics
- tremolo (right hand)
- advanced scales
- advanced arpeggios (right hand)

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.
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.
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?
