Hey now, I like little shady.

Well, that's a lie. I think they're all unimaginative, and at grade 5 i'd sooner play bagpipes than sit through another one of those exams, with some pompass bastard judging every single pickstroke you make.

I only know the ones from the grade three book as that was as high as was called for to get the top grade at standard grade, and of them my favourite was Xaminer Blues II. Simply because it's so easy, but interesting enough to remember.
#12
I still play all funked up to impress people Right now though I'm doing grade 8 so I'd have to go with 667, it's not a great song but it's a good warm up exercise, and handy if anyone challenges you about the bass being more boring than guitar.

Ah, I couldn't stand the other grades. Grade 8 is the only one I've enjoyed.

Besides Fusion, I'm also doing Whatever Happened To Jazz? and maybe Bonzo or 667

The only thing which is putting me off the latter is the final run bit.

I cant stand whatever happend to jazz. Its too boring for me. but hey, just my opinion
#21
It'd be a toss between Samba and Bonzo. Both tunes give some decent room for soloing.
#23
Sampa Samba is great for soloing, 667 is a kickass tune as well. I'm just about to start grade 8, still waiting for my grade 6 results.

I hate it when you know everything inside out, but you make silly mistakes ont he exam day because of the pressure/nerves; still, hopefully I've done enough to pass you only need about 65%
