Finally took my Grade 5 music exam today! I have been practising for AGES. Went ok, messed up on the scales but otherwise it went good. Don't find out if I pass or not for at least two weeks!
EDIT: I just realised that you Americans probably don't know what a grade 5 exam is, right? It is not like your fifth grade for starters, it is completely different. There are 8 musical grades, 1 being easiest, 8 being hardest. Nothing to do with fifth graders and it certainly isn't aimed at that age range .
I dream heavily of being in a band. I play the guitar, acoustic and electric, and love writing songs when I get a good inspiration. I've been playing the guitar for two years, and I know I'm just barely scratching the surface of the instrument. There's still so much to learn, and there's so many guitars I want. I've also been interested in learning how to play the piano at some point.
