Hi there guys, wasn't sure where to post this so I thought this would be best.

I was just wondering if anyone had any example of Grade 3 guitar pieces (UK btw if that makes any difference).
Its just that I need to play a grade 3 song for my GCSE and I have never done grades before.

Thanks for any help.

Regards,
Duncan.

Well baisically it goes up to Grade 8. I don't know how else to describe it lol.
It gets confusing cos you can play like a simple song but if you play it to 'a Grade 3 standard' it counts (I think haha)

whats all this grade stuff. i wanna find out what grade i am


It's an academic program designed to build your skills as a musician on the guitar through a series of grades numbered from 1 to 8. I'm not sure if you even have anything like that in the USA.

However you can find a rough guide to the things you should know for each grade in here: http://www.rockschool.co.uk/rsl/sites/6/documents/GuitarBassDrums_2006-2012_syllabus_guide.pdf

Probably but the rockschool system on it's own is more than adequate for 99% of the players on UG.

rockschool is approved by trinity, which means it's exactly the same standard, in theory.

there's Rockschool books, which should do you fine, go buy grades 3 to 5

i recently did a couple - Grade 3 in The UK and Xaminer Blues II

i'd reccomend them actualy, nice and easy
