I'm loving the more informative emails that are coming through now. I had, to be honest, given up on trying to keep track of threaded discussions but getting the updates to a discussion in my inbox,…Continue
"Not a bad start and, frankly, better than many of the videos out there but I think there are some areas it could be improved. Not least, I think it needs a frame. If you plan on just presenting the video on YouTube, you need to talk to the camera…"
"We tend to use EasyWorship in my current church but, if it was just down to me, we'd probably go for the Open Source OpenSong which was the choice at my previous place. Anyone involved in worship leading or running visuals can have a copy on…"
"For all but the most naturally talented, I think "instinctive" implies at very least absorbing patterns by hearing and participating in rhythms that happen around them. The learning might be unconscious and the knowledge might be…"
"One of the problems is that a little learning is dangerous; once you start, you have to keep on! For example, reaching a mechanically accurate level of timing is good (1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4) and more complex rhythms is even better (1 2 3 2 2 3 1 2 3 4 for…"
"There is certainly no point in reproducing a part as on the CD if no-one else is heeding it (and, anyway, if you want to sound just like the CD it is a lot cheaper to buy a CD player!). However, I'm not sure that someone like Ginger Baker is a…"
"For that, I'd say "vox-all".
I think the foundational observation of English pronunciation is that we actually call it Inglish. It wouldn't be fair to call it a senile language because it is still capable of expressing itself…"
"A lot more time would be spent learning songs; I suspect the singing would benefit in those places with enough skillful singers in place.
Oh, and we would probably start ringing the church bell on Sunday mornings again as a call to worship, since…"

"I can see there are dangers of being conformed to the world but, transformed by the renewing of our minds, we don't have to be petrified when we see someone picking up methods of expression that come from outside church circles. It isn't…"
"How much of a reference to an animal or animals does a song need to count? If it needs to be all through the song or at least in the title / first line your choices will be limited and often woolly. However there are more references dug away. For…"
"I'm not sure I'm convinced of this. For example, what about the blues scale(s)? If you can call it an altered pentatonic minor, which sounds wonderfully highbrow, then a minor scale is merely an altered Ionian (major) scale.
