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

Charles Wolff replied to Wulf Forrester-Barker's discussion 'What notation do you give your team?'
"Well, you could always do the listening and transcribing yourself, and then just hand the 94 pages to your worship leader and say, "this is what I'll be playing.  Let me know if you want any changes." Honestly, as a WL, I had the…"

"That, and holds, vamps, safeties, and entire transition instrumentals numbered in the score aren't marked or included on the original broadway cast sound tracks."

"Honestly, is the objection to written music really about making one's playing stiff and uninspired, or is it because most people don't want to spend the effort to read fluently or don't read at all? "

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to Nathan Gifford's discussion 'You get chord charts from where?!'

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to Nathan Gifford's discussion 'What MUSICAL requirements do you feel should exist for a worship leader?'
