RGT Guitar Teacher Diploma Exam Syllabus

RGT Guitar Teacher Diploma Exam Syllabus
13th April 2015 Shane

Hello, Shane here πŸ˜‰

When I first started getting into website design the first site I built was called Fastfingers, the site was designed in notepad and it was dedicated to learning the guitar specifically, all the Scales, Chords and Arpeggios an individual would need if they were to take the Registry of Electric Guitar Tutors Teachers Diploma, well guess what? The other day I was going through my disks and I found the site, sweet, so… I am posting all the info here.

The original site was put on the net to give students a chance to see exactly what’s involved in the practical section for the then, new grades for electric guitar, of course all the scales, chords and arpeggios will still apply to the classical student.

I also thought it would be a good idea to dedicate the site to the diploma level that way if you learn all the scales and chords that follow, you will breeze through grade 8.

If you already own and have studied ScaleViz, you will know most, if not all of these patterns and how to work them out, If you play the guitar, you have an iPhone and you don’t own ScaleViz, then you are seriously missing out on hundreds of hours worth of study that could otherwise take a lifetime, buy it now, it will be the best decision you make this year.
