Trinity Rock & Pop Bass exams are offered at all grades from Initial (beginner's level) to Grade 8 (advanced). Learners will develop their playing skills beginning with basic positions, picking and damping techniques, and moving on to new instrumental techniques such as slapped and pulled notes, bends and slides, tapping techniques and harmonics. Session Skills will help to develop improvisation and playback skills - both important for bass guitarists.

This book contains all you need for your Bass Grade 1 exam:
  • Songs
  • Performance tips
  • Technical support
  • supporting skills and a group song for those in a band
  • A full CD of demo and backing tracks.

Performing is central to the Rock & Pop exams - you will play three songs and choose to complete one of two Session Skills. You also have the option to include one of your own original songs, so you can make the exam your own and show off your individual talent.

Each exam will be supported by a book with songs in both tab and staff notation, a CD with demo and backing tracks, performance notes, and guidance on technical skills and Session Skills.

With music from the Ramones to Radiohead, Talking Heads to Muse, there is something to suit all bass players.
