“Sönke Meinen’s ACOUSTIC GUITAR LAB” on TrueFire

After a long time of silence I’m back with big news – and I’m immensely happy to finally announce it: As of now, I have my own digital classroom on the leading teaching platform Truefire.

In my ACOUSTIC GUITAR LAB you will find instructional videos on a wide variety of music and guitar-related topics. From detailed explanations of my own compositions, my approach to arranging and composing, music theory, playing techniques to exclusive insights behind-the-scenes – the videos cover a lot of material for beginners as well as advanced players and professionals.

71 videos are already online and I from now on I am going to upload new content for every level every month. You also find summaries, sheet music, tabs and practice plans as PDFs directly below the videos. For all future content, you can let me know in the channel forum what YOU want to learn, so I can cover the topics that you care about. You can also have an additional monthly private lesson with me via the inbuilt Truefire video messenger. The instructional videos are in English, the private lesson can of course be held in English or German. 

You find more details in the following video – and then: Grab your guitar, and I see you in the ACOUSTIC GUITAR LAB!

NEW VIDEO: “The Breeze and the Curtain”

This is „The Breeze and the Curtain“, a tune from Bjarke Falgren´s and my upcoming duo debut album „Postcard to Self“. Just when we finished the album recordings, we decided to move our equipment to the garden of an old schoolhouse in the Danish countryside where we wrote all our pieces. Then we recorded this piece again with the birds singing along.

Our crowdfunding campaign is still active for 10 days – to be able to hear our studio version of this and 13 other pieces very soon, you can preorder our new album as a CD or LP there until August 12th, get it earlier than everyone else, and help us crucially with financing the production! 🙂 Feel free to check it out:

CROWDFUNDING – Bjarke Falgren & Sönke Meinen – “Postcard to Self”

Hey everyone,
ready for something very exciting?
In the past two-and-a-half years Bjarke Falgren and I met in an old schoolhouse in a small and sleepy village in the Danish countryside to write a lot of music together. …and now it is time to finally share our duo debut album „POSTCARD TO SELF“ with you.
Earlier this year we recorded 14 songs, but there are still a few things missing to release our music – so we decided to team up with YOU and created a crowdfunding campaign. With your support our goal is to press our music on CDs and vinyl, pay for the mixing, mastering, photos and artwork and of course promote the album when it gets released. In return we offer you many rewards, which you can only purchase exclusively in this crowdfunding campaign like guitar and violin lessons, signed CDs and LPs, your name in the booklet and house concerts. Please check them out and thank you so much for your support! Lets do this together!

duo album release with Bjarke Falgren in late summer

Ready for some breaking news? I am very excited that after two years of composing, arranging and rehearsing lots of new music, Bjarke Falgren and I started recording our duo debut album! Some pieces are already in the can and soon we will meet for one more recording session. We cannot wait to share lots of new music with you this summer! Of course we will keep you posted about the recordings, be sure check our Facebook and Youtube pages!

To celebrate the finished recording and give you all a preview to the upcoming album, we will play two concerts on Good Friday (March 30th) at Kapelle Felde, Wittenheimstraße 20, 26655 Westerstede. Showtime will be at 3:30pm and at 8:00pm. Tickets are available via Holger Harms-Bartholdy: or +49 4488 9382.

successful start of the year

Hey everyone,

I am back home from the first small solo tour of the year! I had three wonderful evenings in Berlin, Schweinfurt and Giengen – thanks to all of you who came to the concerts, even I visited all of the venues for the first time! And if that wouldn´t be awesome enough, I also got such a nice addition in my “guitar family” and drove home from Giengen with a brand-new guitar by Kobler Guitars, my first Kobler Guitar has a little sister now! I am so much looking forward to taking it on tour and do the first recordings with it!

Speaking about recordings – here is a little overview of my plans of 2018:
– I will play lots of concerts in Germany, Spain, Austria, Poland, Japan, Denmark, Scotland and probably more countries that will be added throughout the year. Please visit the “concerts” menu for details.

– There will be a new album!! (Very excited – will tell you more in a separate post soon)

– In Spring (probably March or April) I will record a series of instructional videos, in which I will teach my pieces and talk about different subjects.

– I am already working on more notation/tab books of my pieces, which will be released one after another in 2018.

It will be an exciting year and I hope to see you at a concert!
All the best,
