    do you play any other instruments?

    speaking as a veteran of gcse music, you will find it quite challenging if you have only been playing music for 3 months....

    Ok stick to the subject.:cool:

    Off to Misc since it is music related.
     
  9. well any one got any ieas for me :(?
     
  10. Robbie, stick at it, and I suggest you check out the General Instruction forum, and have a look at the stickied topic. Read Jazzbo's article on chord construction and scales.

    You'll need to learn about some scales, and if you're having troubles with your playing, speak to your teacher, MAKE him drill at you if necessary!

    don't be surpirsed if you have to start all over again before you go anywhere, and g'luck!

    i too am head over heals in my GCSE music crap. sucks.

    I wish I could do a solo invention or something. DURRRR!

    mmm duurrr grrrrl!!

    What is GCSE, if you don't mind my asking?
     
  12. GCSE is like the course you in the 10th grade, Gabe, like you have AP courses (i think that is the equivalent of our highers).

    you crazy yanks.. guhhee! :):rolleyes:

    Hey i am just starting a music gcse and we have to do a solo. It can be anything you want. They had a chart in a booklet saying if you play a grade 1 piece completely correct you will get 23 out of the 25 available marks, but you can play a grade 4 piece and get 25 marks but you can play it well. Dont worry matey it will be a while off. P.S what school do you go to?

    IN our school, you do group performance, and a solo.

    you can have anything pretty much for solo including voice, but singing isnt avaiable for group performance.

    i wanted to do solo bass, and double bass, but iw asnt aloud, so i got landed with keys. i really, REALLY hate those cheap KBs. i am quite far behind in inventing becuase i cannot stand the sound of those keys! and the fact that i prostested i shuold be doing it on bass, as that is WHAT I PLAY but the teacher had nothing of it!

    oh well. :)

    for me prelim exam i'll be playing Portrait of Tracy, Continuum, and perhaps a rock n roll type song (bouncing souls, dire straits, green day..).

    my actual GSCE exam will probably have the same pieces, unless I decide to go and learn some more.

    I'd love to play me and my bass guitar! hehehe!
