Hi Guys, Just wondering how many of you out there take regular grade exams? I have been studying the RockSchool courses (info at http://www.rockschool.co.uk) for about a years now and I've found it hugely beneficial. I did Grade 3 in November and I have my Grade 4 exam on Friday (4th June 2004). Each course book cost me 20 and the exam is about 50. I haven't had a teacher for the last 6 months so it's been a combination of BassPlayer magazine, TalkBass.com and Mark Levine's "The Jazz Theory Book" that have been tutoring since January. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who are doing similar, equally affordable/accessible courses. All the best, Rob.
