The site does look interesting but the pieces all seem pretty advanced to me (grade 7+ ?), I wonder what their strategy is in this regard as it would reduce their appeal to the wider CG average hobby player and hence reduce their chance of making money when it goes subscription.
I think the site could be better designed as well, it should just show you part 1 of each video and then when you select this you then see a playlist of parts 1 to 5 for your selection. It currently just seems to randomly show a list of videos in no particular order. Would be good to have an alphabetical list of pieces.

Hey there, new here and new to tonebase. Wondering how people found it? It seems they have expanded their selection since this post, curious if it has been helpful and if so how much you all are paying for it?

Cheers!!

There is presently no cost. I have DSL and it is really slow, so I haven’t watched many of the videos. However, I have watched a few of the them. I always learn something... in the last one I watched on Prelude (Leyenda) AKA Asturias, the instructor talked about dynamics and demonstrated that using the same force on the strings tasto and ponticello gives a different perceived dynamic. I am now experimenting with that in the pieces I am currently working on.
Even if you are not playing the piece they are discussing, you will probably hear something useful.
