Acoustic Guitar Syllabus 2020-2023

CHANGES FROM THE PLECTRUM GUITAR EXAMS
◗ Repertoire lists refreshed at all levels, featuring folk, acoustic, rock and pop, jazz, blues and
country styles alongside favourite pieces from the plectrum guitar lists

◗ New exam books, containing all the pieces listed in this syllabus

◗ Repertoire now offers opportunities for both fingerstyle and plectrum playing

◗ Backing tracks now available for selected pieces

◗ Duets now available up to Grade 5

OVERLAP ARRANGEMENTS
This syllabus is valid from 1 January 2020. The Guitar Syllabus 2016–2019 will remain valid until 31 December 2020, giving a one year overlap. During this time, candidates may enter for exams using the Acoustic Guitar Syllabus 2020–2023 or the plectrum guitar section of the Guitar Syllabus 2016–2019, but not a mixture of both.
