So I've finally reached the dizzy heights of preparing for grade 8 under the new 2012 syllabus.
It's all going pretty smoothly but, as always, there's that one pesky scale that I just can't get right D flat major, three octaves. Every time I play it I end on a D, not D flat. I check my tuning and it's normally out of tune after the first octave, which is strange seeing as I think I did it (2 octaves) for grade 6 with same fingering and was totally fine. The other annoying think is I can't even hear it shifting sharp, and overall I have a good ear for tuning
Can anyone help and is anyone having similar issues? Also, how's everyone finding the new syllabus? Which pieces are you doing? I'm doing Haydn C Major - 3rd movement, Dancla Resignation and John Williams Remembrances.
