Grade 1 Exam Help :)

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by azian32, Jan 30, 2013.

  1. Hey guys

    So im currently studying with my bass teacher for my first grade one exam and im having trouble finding some simple but powerful bass line songs to play for my exam. Any tips or song choices?

    I usually play lots of RHCP and Rage etc. But im nervous about playing those songs because i can't play them without the CD yet since my self timing isn't that advanced.

    Not sure about where you live, but as a rule in the UK, if you turn up to an exam and have downloaded material you will be failed before you even start.

    All materials a student has must be produced by them, that means written or recorded by them. You can download and then re-write it out, then it is your work.
    You cannot photocopy or scan other materials, but again you can copy it out, just make sure you do not have the originals in your folders.
    Also here in the UK teachers have been sacked for allowing students to have such material in the folders. Check with your teacher and the exam board what are their criteria.:cool:
