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.

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.

As you can see, the Performance section of the exam is worth 50 out of a possible marks, and therefore it is recommended that you spend enough time in the practice room to fully prepare to be successful during this section of the Grade 1 Acoustic Guitar Exam.

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.

Tempo: 85 bpm Rhythmic Recall The examiner will play you a two bar rhythm played to a drum backing on the lowest-sounding E string. You will be asked to play the rhythm back. You will then be asked to identify the rhythm from two printed examples shown to you.

The test is made up of quarter and eighth notes and quarter note rests. Each time the test is played it is preceded by a one bar count-in.

There will be a short gap for you to practise. Next you will hear a vocal count-in and you will then play the rhythm to the drum backing. Four of these questions will be about general music knowledge and the fifth question will be asked about your instrument.

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.
