After the consecutive traumas of having the exam date arrive two months earlier than expected; being volcanically stranded in the US for two weeks and having my current work project extended into June (not entirely a bad thing), I’ve just received the results of my recent exam in Electric Guitar, Grade 5, to find that I have passed.  This much against my expectations on the day.

rock schoolThe exam was under the auspices of Rock School whose unfortunately cheesy name masks an OfQual recognised syllabus which combines musical and technical knowledge with tunes you might actually want to play.

Much credit and thanks need to go to my teacher and coach, Nick Hollings, whose patient teaching (especially his guidance on creating the solos) were the only reason I managed to pass.

Now, onto Grade 6.
