Session #3 – Free Jam
The class gathered after lunch to jam through the tracks for tomorrows student performance. Simon and Richard ran through some of the changes in ‘Stormy Monday Blues’.
Today’s style focus is modern rock and the chosen track is ‘Time Is Running Out‘ by Muse, which is found on the bands 2003 album Absolution.
The track demonstrates the technical and stylistic evolution between the classic rock of the 60s and modern rock of the past 20 years.
