The digital version includes the book PDF format , all tracks and supporting tests. This section will test your knowledge of the basic anatomy of the guitar, including notes on the fingerboard and the parts of the guitar. In this section of the exam, the examiner will play a short melody and the candidate will provide the accompaniment for this melody.
The melody presented here could be drawn from one of a range of musical styles that you would normally associate with the acoustic guitar, including traditional folk, contemporary folk and blues. After the chord chart is presented to the candidate, and they are given a short time to look it over, the examiner will play the melody through once and you may listen and follow along during this first run through.
The melody will then be played three more times without stopping as the candidate attempts a suitable accompaniment over the melody. In the first verse of the three continuous playings your playing will not be assessed.
You can either sit and listen to the melody or practice your rhythm playing during this first verse of the three. The style of accompaniment will be left up to the discretion of the candidate, and they can choose to either fingerpick or strum the chords along to the melody. Aural Assessment The Aural Assessment section of the Grade 1 exam will be relatively familiar for those candidates that have already taken the Preliminary Grade Exam.
Here, you will be tested on your aural abilities via five individual tests appropriate for this grade level.
Tests A, B and C — In this section, a four-bar melody will be played and the tests will involve clapping the pulse of the melody, identifying the time signature of the same melody, and well as reproducing the rhythm of an extract taken from the melody.
Test D — Here, you will reproduce on guitar a short melodic phrase after the examiner has performed it twice for you on their instrument.
