        Musicroom Reviews

        This will be a really useful addition to my GCSE resources as in my experience bass guitarists never seem to know what to play for their GCSE performances and ensembles, especially if they are not in a band. What would have made this book better is if the pieces had been graded according to the GCSE boards level of difficulty - ie Easy, standard or more difficult as in the case of Edexcel.
