Trinity grades do only go up to 8 in the UK, the G8 standard is pretty high, as this Sting track suggests.

For my grade 8 I have to pick one of the following three choices for a mandatory 'technical focus' evaluation.

1. Sting, Seven Days
2. Stanley Clarke, Silly Putty
3. Rush, Spirit of Radio

They are all hard, but I think they are in order of difficulty here. Personally, at the moment, after 15 minutes of trying, I can't quite wrap my head around the strangeness of those Hi-Hat accents, in 4/4 time, over a bar of 5/4 with the kick and snare. Just doesn't feel right somehow.

It is indeed a tough nut to crack, I would be lying if I said I didn't have to practice for it properly. :)
