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
""Always" is a pretty high standard. I consider myself quite a stickler for detail and yet I'm still quite pleased every time a chart I've created makes it through being used in earnest without spotting something to…"
"Given the amount of songs we use at church and the amount of time available for the group to rehearse, it has to be stands all the way. If I'm leading, it's mainly so that I can glance down for a reminder of the words the congregation are…"
"It depends on the context. Assuming we're talking about 'worship leader' as 'person who makes the music happen in services' , you could theoretically have a brilliant worship leader who isn't a musician at all and…"
"Despite the fact I love it, I'm little cautious of the fact that, from the musicians end of the game, spontaneous worship can be suspiciously close to what would be called 'jamming' outside of the worship context. I think we can…"
"Song binders are a headache. When I previously lived in London, we used small folders for most of our music and they required a fair amount of maintenance to keep them usable. Sheets would get worn round the punched holes and drop out, items would…"
"One glaring problem with the way we do things is that we don't have a binder of our entire library for each person. We practice the songs for that week - that week. I find myself relearning the same songs over and over again, having…"
"I see this is an older discussion but it only goes back a couple of years before Carri picked it up. To the original poster, I'd comment that I think it is more glacial than cool if worship music in 2015 was only just picking up styles from the…"
"Whenever I try to share things like this, it comes out rather dark. Just me then?
Anyway, we collect the copies and file them so as not to have stray copies reprodu
cing more copies that we can't then track, when each copy has our CCLI # on it."
"And a happy Sunday to you, too :-( I was expecting to read that on Sunday the bass shows up and plays unnecessarily complex lines, off the beat and occasionally a half-step north or south of the rest of the club.
We long ago gave up trying to…"
"Typical rehearsal and Sunday:
Hand out chord sheets or lead sheets at rehearsal
bass plays quarter note or half note roots/slash notes
single electric guitar (me) covers some lines, tries to fill space with…"
"I know the ones you mean. They do some interesting comparisons although there's quite a high drivel rating. I'm very grateful for the ability to skip through YouTube videos. The Pedal Show ones are a bit more content rich, although I also…"
"Been a while since I've answered this one, so, the image below is what everybody in the band gets. I used one of my own songs so there won't be copyright issues. This is something I laid out in Microsoft Publisher, I'm not…"
"Segovia demonstrates how to play from notation. Imagine someone putting that score into a midi player, perfectly quantised, or how it would look if you wanted to write more precisely what he played down to the nearest hemi-demi-semiquaver (64th…"
"I have heard that about notation from others also, but I sensed irony in their claim that notation encourages rigid, wooden playing when those same people would offer as the alternative playing back lines memorized from recordings - to a click track."
