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.
