It's safe to say Sandy Beales knows what he's on about when it comes to playing bass. Not only did he tour the world with One Direction for five years, but he even featured on that Wheatus tune 'Only You' and worked on Drull's debut album.

So obviously that made him the perfect fella to toddle along to Guildford's Academy of Contemporary Music to give students a masterclass *and* answer all their burning bass-based questions. Might as well put his experience to good use, eh?

Chatting to the students, Sandy advised: "Gig, gig all the time, do as much gigging as you can, meet as many people as you can, just make all your contacts, say yes to everything, just get out there and gig. 

"Be there, be punctual, be reliable, make sure people can know your name and be like oh yeah that guy is great he's doing a really good job. No matter what you do, do a good job, even if it's the smallest gig in the world - just do a good job."

Our Sandy also told 'em to learn as many skills as possible, before they all played a rendition of Katy Perry's 'California Gurls' (absolute tune tbh) and blew his bloody socks off. Hoorah.

What d'ya make of that, then? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape and don't forget to like us on Facebook while you're at it. Ta, love.
