Rockschool – the world’s leading examination board for contemporary musicians – has released a brand new acoustic guitar syllabus that will ‘equip every student with a level of technical and stylistic understanding that is second to none’.
The syllabus contains tracks from Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Pat Metheny, Newton Faulkner, Brent Mason and Tommy Emmanuel, and combines modern hits with classic tunes.
Nik Preston, head of product development and publishing at Rockschool Ltd, said: “As always, authenticity is uppermost in our minds when developing any new syllabus. With Rockschool Acoustic, any guitar student can not only choose repertoire from a diverse array of artists such as Metallica, Taylor Swift, Dominic Miller, Nuno Bettencourt and Tommy Emmanuel, but also perform to backing tracks featuring performances from musicians that have played and recorded for artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Brian May, BB King and Rihanna.”
