At Grade 1, you can learn about strumming patterns and how to play a shuffle accompaniment. You’ll perform three songs and build on your Initial 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 syllabus.



In your Grade 1 exam you’ll play a set list of three songs. Two of these will be from our Grade 1 songbook, including a technical focus (TF) song which focuses on two specific technical skills which run throughout the song, so you can demonstrate these techniques seamlessly in your performance. Your other song can be from our Grade 1 songbook, or can be a song of your own choice, a song that you’ve written, or a cover version that you’ve arranged.

These songs are included in the Grade 1 Guitar songbook:

THE WHO I Can't Explain (TF)
CAESARS Jerk It Out (TF)
ROXY MUSIC Love Is The Drug
BOB DYLAN Mr. Tambourine Man
ARCADE FIRE Ready To Start
BIG STAR September Gurls
JACK WHITE Sixteen Saltines (TF)
