        Good variety of pieces to make the rockschool exam preparation more suited to your musical taste. It also nice to practice 'real' hits.
        Pieces are probably a bit more difficult than the standard book (or that the free piece you can choose for your exam) so this is a more interesting but not an easier way towards your grade 3.

        Good variety of material. Songs are great examples of rock. 2 examples of each song is very helpful to aid students development

        Really good book with accurate tab and two versions of each song so you can play them in the exams. I would recommend it. (Fionn age 12)

        My guitar students are delighted to have famous songs to play for their grades. Having the full score as well is a real bonus. Well done Rockschool.
