Skinner wrote over 600 tunes many of which are still very popular in the Scottish repertoire and contained in this book such as The Bonnie Lass of Bon Accord, The £10 fiddle, Cradle Song, The Flower of the Quern, etc. He lived long enough to have his music preserved on early recordings and from these we can hear what an amazing fiddler he was. He is buried in Aberdeen where the city erected a memorial in his honour. This book is full of his well known solos and has been a best seller for many years.
The book and CD contain everything needed to play guitar in this grade. In the book you will find the exam scores in both standard guitar notation and TAB. The accompanying CD has full stereo mixes of each tune, backing tracks to play along with for practice, tuning notes and spoken two bar count-ins to each piece.
Handy tips on playing the pieces and the marking schemes can be found in the Guru's Guide on page 16. If you have any queries about this or any other Rockschool exam, please call us on 0845 460 4747, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website www.rockschool.co.uk. Good luck!
