Yeah I'm going A levels soon and the requirement was to be able to play Grade 5 Bass. So I was wondering if someone can tell me a few songs and tabs that are at this level.
Thanks.

Just buy the Rockschool Grade 5 book. It's rather easy considering its Grade 5, but they can't refuse you because it is grade 5.

if you're at grade 5 then you really should be reading notation not tabs

yeah as the guy above me said just get a rockschool book and breeze through it, you shouldn't have much problem providing you have the basic idea of moving your fingers to play bass. and i'll tell you know A level music is easy, you only learn up to grade 3 or 4 in terms of theory but it's proper theory not rockschool theory

oh yeah buy yourself "the AB guide to music theory volume 1" i made use from my copy every theory lesson

Okay thanks for the help, I can read notation but I find it a lot easier reading tab. Thanks though. Ill look into buying this rockschool book.

Seriously, rockschool is a joke. I would use it as a reference for the minimum standard you need, but after that, go with the most technical piece you can play perfectly.

Yes that was what I was looking for mainly as I can play things like The Who and Level 42. But i wanted to know if it was of a good enough level.
As i was told by a guitar teacher that The Real Me by The Who was of a grade 3 standard. Which I'm still not sure is totally correct.
