General Discussion / What The Group is About
  • Sessions every odd Wednesday (before regular Thursday RML session)
  • Open to all RML members who play an acoustic instrument (inc keyboard).
  • Participants should play an instrument so they can contribute to other people's songs other than vocally (even if basic keyboard, percussion).
  • Not a rehearsal - it's a no commitment, drop-in session.
  • 12.30pm-3.30pm with a break.
  • Intended to help musicians play and develop collaboratively and assist in performing in small groups as well as solo.
  • Provide something not available in regular RML sessions.
  • Song choice a bit more considered: suggested by members subject to suitability for either shared vocal or interesting instrumental arrangement possibilities, and the participants aptitudes and objectives of the group. Can be an instrumental.
  • Not the same as the RML Unplugged sessions, which are usual RML format just without amps.
  • Build up a library of songs with arrangements developed by the group.
  • SESSION PART 1: Technical exercises: fingerpicking, strumming, harmony singing.
  • SESSION PART 2: Play and arrange some songs.
  • Cost £5.
