    I think it’s easy for people to come in with ideas they have in their head. I think we all do to some extent. Being teachable is probably the most important attribute when we serve. I try to remember that for myself as well. I think as a leader , it’s important to know the people with whom you...

    Haha , that’s it I’m sure . I try to serve the song. If there is spot for a short solo that keeps the song moving in the same direction and it adds something to the song , I’ll take it . If it doesn’t add to the song , then no. A good example is Paul Baloches Praise Is Rising. I don’t feel that...

    I don’t go out of my way to not play like the recording . If there is recognizable lick ,it at least represent it , maybe not necessarily down to the note, but the hook will be there. Most of the time I’ll improvise. I don’t use dotted eighth delays, but I do utilize delays and reverb for...

    Unfortunately , this is where it it ends sometimes. My present WL mentioned utilizing backing tracks “just for rehearsal”. Honestly , for us it wouldnt serve any useful purpose other than to replicate the recording exactly . A deal breaker for me .

    That Darrell Evans cd is still one of my favorite worship cds of all time. I started out leading worship I’m my small group at our church . Just me and my acoustic guitar , sometimes 2. We played the songs that we sang at church mostly. All stripped down and we used to have the most beautiful...

    To be honest , I have played in situation where it was just an acoustic guitar and congos , 2 acoustic guitars ( one using a capo) with congos and maybe a strat played clean. There are a lot of ways to compensate for fewer musicians. Vineyard music used to have an Acoustic cd of some of their...

    I’m Having The Best Time

    Black_doug, plus 1000 percent. And what Ascension said. Worship should be fun and exciting . Yes it’s work , but really we are merely facilitators ,in the end God gives us all different giftings to be used as he He sees fit for His glory .

    Yeah , this is a slippery slope indeed. I can maybe see if you absolutely don’t have those players. To the churches that do , while it may improve the final sound , it doesn’t do much for becoming a better worshipping musician imo. To me the music should be simple enough for the average person...

    Well , I believe our role is just to facilitate an atmosphere that allows “We” , the congregation to enter into a place where our hearts and minds are fixed on God .Simply put anyways . Does not give more importance to those facilitating or create an Us vs Them atmosphere , or at least it...

    Yeah, we put our drummer in an aquarium too. We also stuff the keyboard player and myself in the corner. The “background “ singers are up front. Do they not understand what background means? :lol:

    Agreed. I suppose imitating the recording is better than sticking CDs in , but the Anointing only goes as far as the recording goes and forget about spontaneity .

    Just as the title says . How do you approach to the Sunday morning set list . As a guitar player I’ve done both improvising and trying to do something close to the original. I much prefer improvising as I think if the giftings are there it allows space for worship to really happen and allows...

    We're all being suckered......

    Who is this “we” that you speak of? I was never suckered into buying something more expensive and neither was anyone else.

    Well my 70th Anny Broadcaster neck pickup crapped out….

    So the shop called Fender today and was told they have to make my pickup, which can take up to 30 days. I wasn’t really sure how they would handle it . Now I know. Glad they are doing what it takes to make it right . The guitar came with custom shop hand wound 50/51 blackguards.

    70s Martins - repair and some history of that era.

    A few years ago I stumbled across a 72 D35 that was a great guitar in great condition for that era. Neck was straight , plenty of frets left. Action was 6/64ths with plenty of saddle left , no cracks in the top or elsewhere. It had really beautiful tone for a D35 and I’ve owned one and played a...

    Thanks. That’s good to know.

    Well my 70th Anny Broadcaster neck pickup crapped out….

    From what I understand repairing it is an option. Since this is under warranty , I’m curious how Fender handles it. Its entirely possible they have one in stock , but I’m skeptical. They’ve had it for a couple weeks and when I called ,they said they’re waiting for a part. When I talked to the...

    Well my 70th Anny Broadcaster neck pickup crapped out….

    It just quit working and took it to the local service center for warranty. Apparently the neck pickup needs replaced , but it’s a limited edition that was only produced for one year. It should be interesting how this gets resolved . I think it came with 50/51 blackguard handwounds.

    A little tongue in cheek; Incessant Tuning?!?

    Yeah , improperly set up guitars . If your bigsby or tremolo guitar can’t hold tuning when you use it , don’t use it or better yet get the nut fixed and strings stretched first. I have yet to have a guitar that can’t hold tuning once I set them up. That includes 3 Gibsons, a Gretsch and 2 Strats...

    A little tongue in cheek; Incessant Tuning?!?

    I play different guitars depending on the set list. Played my Les Paul the last 3 weeks. Colder outside and they turn the heat up when we get there for rehearsal. Usually I’m fine for the first couple of songs , then I need to retune due to the temp change. I might need to retune before we play...

    A little tongue in cheek; Incessant Tuning?!?

    I use a poly tune so I mute if I’m tuning. I changed strings the day before and didn’t have a problem. Usually tune up after rehearsal before church . Check my tuning before the message so I’m ready to go for our last song. The temp changes this time a year can play into it somewhat , but for...

    Well this is a first sound man left me a message on my camera this morning LOL.

    I try to play between the bass and keys as much as possible . Not always an easy task . It does take time playing with new people . Did these guys have an electric player before you came?
