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

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to Nathan Gifford's discussion 'Worship Musicians Skipping Out on the Preaching'
"As a rule, I'd be surprised to see this happening. There might be valid reasons once in a while but I'd want to follow up if it was habitual. Anyway, in my present church, the longest block of music tends to be about 3 songs. It isn't…"

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to Lorraine Doswell's discussion 'Who wrote the song?'
"CCLI is quite good but has some gaps. You also need to be careful it is actually the song you are thinking about - for example, plenty of people have written songs called 'Holy', 'Holy, Holy' or even 'Holy, Holy, Holy'.…"

Greg Newhouse replied to Wulf Forrester-Barker's discussion 'What notation do you give your team?'
"Chord charts are sufficient for non-piano instruments, with the piano still mostly needing written music. But are we a contemporary worship band? We have electric guitar, piano, bass, rarely drums, acoustic guitar, keyboards, and acoustic guitar…"

Greg Newhouse replied to Wulf Forrester-Barker's discussion 'What notation do you give your team?'
"If the worship leader knows how to express what is wanted, a chord chart is sufficient. If the worship leader is the person who's leading songs this month, what is needed can be problematic. So far, I am playing in what I assume is a trusting…"

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to Wulf Forrester-Barker's discussion 'What notation do you give your team?'
"If you are in an accompaniment role, how much of the rhythm and melody do you need written down as compared to what you *hear* from the person leading the song? Of course, I am assuming a decently written chart - ideally with barlines or, if it is a…"

Greg Newhouse replied to Wulf Forrester-Barker's discussion 'What notation do you give your team?'
"I've type out and backspaced over, and even posted and deleted several responses that soundsd too harsh. I'll keep trying if this one doesn't work out either. If I get a chord chart, I get no sense of melody or rhythm. From a…"

Lorraine Doswell replied to Wulf Forrester-Barker's discussion 'What notation do you give your team?'
"I provide chord charts and think that score music does not flow well and is so limiting when you desire to 'feel' the music and be spontaneous.  I also don't like chord charts written in stone as what appeals to me one week may…"

Nathan Gifford replied to Wulf Forrester-Barker's discussion 'What notation do you give your team?'
"I have always used chord charts for the band. Full scored sheet music I find to be overkill for the contemporary worship band. Plus, it makes it more difficult to be more flexible and "on the fly" in a service. I have generally used full…"

Greg Newhouse replied to Wulf Forrester-Barker's discussion 'What notation do you give your team?'
"What would I like as an electric guitarist? If there's specific lines to play I'd like staff notation in the correct octave for guitar. Not Likely. Nashville notation would be fine as I'd have some sense of rhythm and timing of…"

What notation do you give your team?

Spinning off from the discussion of 'irrelevant skills', and particularly the subsection about what to call the chord spelt: B D F A C (Dm7/B... or Bm7b5b9) brought back to mind a question I asked at a gathering of my worship team last Sunday afternoon: what would you like to see written down to help you?We've got some people who are very notation orientated - they want the dots (vocal parts / piano part…See More

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to Nathan Gifford's discussion 'Groups are back!'
"I'm inclined to say keep them - there are some pearls of wisdom there, or at least some grit that might form the basis of new pearls. A third option, which may be possible is to keep them but rename them with something like the word…"

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to Nathan Gifford's discussion 'Patriotic Worship Music'

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to Doug Barker's discussion 'Hymns'
"I see this is quite an old discussion but not one I've chipped into before. I wonder how it worked out for Doug (are you still around)? My take is that contemporary versions of hymns are often a good way to introduce them to new audiences who…"

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to C. Foster Payne's discussion 'Is the Church Orchestra Dying?'
"Likewise, it isn't a thing I've experienced in any of the churches I've been in. We get a few "orchestral" instruments - often violin, sometimes cello and I took my double bass down a few weeks ago - but that doesn't…"

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to David Wettrich's discussion 'Mainstage vs Ableton'
"I can't comment on Mainstage vs Ableton directly although, if you are thinking about cost, Ableton for your existing PC will be a lot cheaper than buying a Mac in order to use Mainstage. Even secondhand, working Mac laptops are on the spendy…"

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to Nathan Gifford's discussion 'Full-time or Part-time worship leader?'
"In my church, there was a small annual honorariam for leading the worship group but, when I took on the role, I declined it. As a lump sum, it looked quite large; spread across the year it would become a paltry amount per week. It didn't seem…"
