    Hi guys,

    Yesterday I was in the studio with the worship band from my church. a lot of home grown songs and we were just putting them onto tape.

    Although the other guys were encouraging me to use my chops and licks it felt out of place a little. Im not sure if it was because the songs were so raw or that my style clashes (Im a die hard Punk-Funk fan and most of the guys are gospel soul dudes)

    Jitters or am i over thinking a non existing 'pride' issue?

    maybe do a demo with some of your licks. although I would say that if you feel uncomfortable because it doesn't sound right, chances are, it really doesn't sound right.

    btw, congrats on the recording gig! :)

    I'd say go with what the guys are telling you. You have to trust the guys running the sessions. When the music is your thing (fast punk) you go with your gut more, but in this case you need to trust the producers or whoever is running the session, if they want more go for it, if they want less, they'll tell you.

    Remember, just because what you think your stuff is doesn't mean that it doesn't fit with what the other dudes are doing. Some of the best music out there is the result of hybridizing different styles.

    Can you get the rhythm tracks as .WAV files and try laying down some of your own tracks on an experimental basis using Audacity or some other DAW program if you don't have Sonar or Pro Tools, et al.? This way, you can hear how your playing works in context with the songs and the rest of the team can choose which approach works thee best.
