Final Morning

During the morning session the Rock Apprentices were given a recap of the weeks learning materials and an introduction on how to use the blog as a tool to help them continue to learn.

One question that was asked was; “How do you play a Bo Diddley Shuffle?”. Well… Like this:

…and sounds a little something like this:

  5. Getting on and off stage drill
