“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: http://www.startnext.com/en/postcardtoself/
