Got my RSL Grade 2 results today

This was my first exam so I was pleased (and quite surprised) to get a distinction with 90/100! Eyes down for Grade 3...

    @drpbier ;

    Well done, not started with my Grade 1 yet, maybe in the new year.  90% means you must be doing something right I guess!  How have you found it i.e boring, useful, challenging etc and any tips?

  • Congrats! Is this for acoustic or electric?

    I got one of my learners sitting their Grade 2 acoustic on Sunday, we did our final preparations last night. They should be ok.

    Thanks @Shrews. I really enjoyed it. Before I started on the grades I was using Guitar Tricks for about 9 months, with the coaching 'Plus' membership - which I liked and found useful. However this suits me better as it's more progressive and quantifiable. I see a local teacher fortnightly and he determined that I was at Grade 2 level so that's where I started. I found the pieces quite challenging  - some parts were easy but there were passages in all 3 I really struggled to get under my fingers until I slowed them RIGHT down and repeated them over and over and increased the beat by 5bpm until they were up to tempo. I had about 7 months to prepare, picked pieces that I liked and practiced every day. Towards the end I was using the pieces, scales and chords as a warm up and started on the Grade 3 pieces, for some variety.
