        Longridge GB Professional player and teacher.
        Comprehensive selection of scales and exercises - although why any student would need to know a Locrian mode for this style of playing is beyond me.
        There are more technically demanding pieces in grade 4. Some of the pieces are repetitive and it wouldn't do any harm to have vocals on the backing tracks.
