At Grade 6, you can learn about double and triple stopping and slapping and popping. You’ll perform three songs and build on your Grade 5 Session skills.
Choose your songs from our song list, including one of the Technical focus songs that develop particular skills. There’s an option for you to play your own cover version of a song or, if you’re a songwriter, one of your own songs.
You’ll find more information about how the exam works in the syallbus.
The Grade 6 Bass songbook includes everything you need for the exam – sheet music for six songs, performance tips, technical support and guidance on Session skills, together with a CD of demo and backing tracks.
Maintaining rhythmic accuracy
Players choose Playback or Improvising.
You’ll perform some music you haven’t seen or heard before – you can sight-read from a song chart or play by ear from an audio track, or both.
You’ll be given a song chart with chord symbols and song style and will improvise over a backing track.
