We began the morning by rehearsing our performance songs for the student concert, playing through ‘Run’ and Everybody Hurts’ in preparation for our two guest vocalists to join us in the afternoon sessions.

Session 2

After a long practice session we broke up the morning with a session on bass lines and how to apply them to chords and melodies, with a particular focus to the classic rock riff ‘Smoke on the Water’ – Deep Purple.
