Yeah we know you're pining for Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan during all of this hiatus malarky, but let's all remember that there'll forever be a special place in our hearts for the One Direction band, too.
In fact, we were missing the 1D musicians SO MUCH that we gave bassist Sandy Beales a call to see if he wanted to come over for a cuppa, and to tell us all about his brand new venture - giving kickass online music lessons over Skype.
Yep, ACTUAL SANDY could be your ACTUAL MUSIC TEACHER, which is just some kind of perfect fan fiction come to life, really.
Having left life on the road with One Direction on hold for a little while, Sandy's embarking on a new venture these days. He's set up his own Skype music school, to teach you the ins and outs of any instrument you fancy in awesome one-on-one lessons to anywhere in the world.
Sandy's offering tuition to musicians of any level, and to prove it, he decided to teach the least musically talented humans in all the land. Yep, that would be us.
We have a few talents here at Sugarscape, including eating 23 biscuits in one sitting and being able to recognise all of Niall Horan's sock collection, but playing the guitar really isn't one of them.
Check out our absolute LOL of a lesson with Sandy in the vid below. He was an INCREDIBLE teacher and the most patient man ever born. We were just errrr... a bit crap.
Whaddya reckon to all of this then? Inspired to pick up a bass and get pluckin'? Never wanna hear 'Seven Nation Army' EVER AGAIN? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape, and don't forget to like us on Facebook too.
