So I was recently doing grade 4, but when I changed teacher, my new teacher told me to forget that and I've started grade 6. But 0_o: The pieces are only slightly harder and some of the easier grade 6 ones are easier than the hard grade 4 ones!

Why is there so little of a difference in technique between grades? Because theory-wise, yes grade 6 is harder, but technique wise it really isn't that much harder.

I noticed this when i jumped from 5 to 6, but dont get too cocky. Just count your lucky stars that there are some easy ones

I've jumped 3 to 6. The theory you have to know is harder, the techniques you have to display are harder, obviously you're solos have to be better and you need to know more scales.

I guess, then, that it is helped by the fact that I already knew all my modes and other scales by grade 3. I'm the kind of person that kind of wants to find out exactly how everything works so I can spend hours researching music theory and not get bored =]. But yeah, I agree, the theory part is harder. However it just seems to me there isn't really much of a difference between the pieces.

And yeah, I really do count myself lucky =P

I've only just started, I'm doing PMA. Me and my teacher expected it to be the heardest, turns out it's the easiest in the whole book, I learnt it within an hour =P.

Apart from that I'm thinking of doing Big, big, big and either september chill or musement park, though I haven't attempted any of them yet, just scanned through them to see what matches my playing style best =P

Threadstarter, could you post some pieces or requierments there are for grade 6? Its just I have no idea what grade I am, and would like to know what kind of standard I am.

^ all wrong... about 1/2 the tests marks rely on ability to play chords/scale and good theory knowledge (including modes). So your talking bulls**t
