What would be considered a Grade 8 bass piece?

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean by grade 8? Like 8th grade?


I think he means rockschool grade 8.
It's the highest grade for some music thing across the pond.
I'm pretty sure we don't have anything like it over here.

I would think you know the Grade 8 pieces are on youtube already, so maybe try some Dream Theatre or something? I don't know, I haven't looked into it to be honest.

over here (UK) there is a grading system for students of musical instruments, they go from grade 1 (a 5 year old could pass with distinctions) to grade 8 (see the link i posted)

Grade 8 doesn't look anywhere near as hard as it should.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Is it similar to the RCM standards? I'm not sure whether or not it's used in the states, but it is the grading system in Canada.
