Melodic Recall and Pitch Tests

All guitar grade books require the candidate to complete a listening assessment that includes a melodic recall / pitch test.

Grades including RGT, Rockschool and Trinity College.

This test involves listening to a short melody a couple of times and then playing it back on the guitar. This can be particularly difficult for beginners to the guitar, especially young learners who are not as experienced with melodic structure.

Although the grade books contain a few examples they are not sufficient to develop skills in this area.

Because of this I have developed some additional learning material to help students with melodic recall.

If you would like to download the material you can subscribe to Guitar Lessons East London and the downloads will be available.

Thanks.

Guitar Pro 6: Editing tablature and standard notation

Accessories for guitar learning I recommend include software like Guitar Pro 6, which is a tablature / score editing software and be used to simply download tabs of songs you like or you can make up your own guitar tabs and mix them with other sounds to make complete compositions.

If you interested in Guitar Pro 6 and you would like some teaching of how to use it then this can be arranged during a guitar lesson. Inquire about this before or during a lesson.
