Visit our The following pieces are contained in the book Guitar Grade 1 Pieces – The Electric Guitar Grade 1 book contains everything you need to sit your Grade 1 exam - in one essential book. It's packed with essential techniques and theory.

Aural Assessment 10 Marks As you can see, using this division of the marks can help you divide your practice time, as you can spend more time preparing for the sections with more marks, and less time on sections that have less marks in order to ensure that you have spent enough time on each section of the exam relevant to the marks given for that section. Fingerboard Knowledge During this section of the exam, the examiner will request a selection of chords and scales to be performed from memory. For the chords, each requested chord should be strummed once slowly, and for the scales, they should be played ascending and descending without repeating the top note of the scale. In the exam, you will be required to know the scales and chords from the previous two exams, as well as a number of new chords and scales to be chosen by the examiner in the exam. Remember, while playing the correct chord is of course important, there is a strong importance placed on chord clarity and scale evenness, so make sure to work on these aspects of your playing in the practice room before taking the exam. This will allow you to focus more of your attention in the practice room on the other four sections of the Grade 1 exam. If this is your first RGT Acoustic Guitar Exam, then more time will be needed to fully ensure that you are secure with each of the chords and scales from this section, both the new requirements and those including in the previous two exams. Performance The Performance section for the Grade 1 Acoustic Guitar Exam is divided into two sections, the Rhythm Study which is worth up to 25 marks, and a choice of one Melody OR one Fingerstyle Study, which is worth up to 25 marks for the one piece that the candidate chooses to perform. The Rhythm Study, and either the Melody or Fingerstyle Study from this section of the exam, can be read from the Grade 1 Handbook, as they are not required to be memorized in order to achieve full marks in this section of the exam. Candidates will need to prepare one of the Rhythm Studies from the Grade 1 Acoustic Guitar Book, as they will be asked to perform this piece unaccompanied during the exam. If you choose to perform the Fingerstyle Study, you will choose one of the options presented in the Grade 1 RGT Acoustic book and perform that on the exam. The studies contained in the book will be at the same difficulty level as the melodic options, but will allow candidates to study and perform a fingerstyle song if that is of more interest to them than the melody selection. Because there are two pieces to be performed during the Performance section of the Grade 1 Exam, each song is worth 25 marks, for a total of 50 for the melody section as a whole.

The riff shown in bar 1 should be played in the same shape in bars 2—4.

The root note of the pattern to be played is shown in the music in each of the subsequent three bars. The test is 4 bars long. The examiner will allow 90 seconds preparation and practice time and will offer the option of practising with or without a metronome.

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.
