Lol I know what you mean, it took me atleast a full month to memorise the 5 modes of the blues scale (which is basically pentatonic minor with a few extra notes...I think) Just print them out on a piece of paper and try to to devote atleast 30mins a day to memorise scales. Atleast you're doing this while youre doing GCSE's I was doing em when I was writing A Levels :P

And if the Sweet Child O Mine solo is too hard (it defo is for me) just learn the riff and try to learn the solo to November Rain and KNockin on Heavens Doors, both a lot easier than that.

thx m8 ahhhh got a test tomoz lol meh cant be ****ed with it just live on the doll lol
Lol, get the 5 C's you'll need and work hard at A Level. GSCE is just a ticket to A Level.

I didnt revise for my GCSE's at all, but got good grades. When youre doin A Levels, you'll realise just how piss easy GCSE's were lol

I agree with Satch. 8 A's and 2 A*'s at GCSE with very little revision. AS and A level = much harder (in some subjects).

Anyway, try some Trivium, Metallica, Iron Maiden for some cool guitar stuff.

By the way, if you get bored and wanna stop in an exam just think this:

"As soon as this paper is done, I've finished this subject, might as well just do my best then I wont have to live with uneducated street cleaners (no offense if anyone here does that)".

Really helped during those 6 hours of English essays.....
