Good morning to all who may be reading this!God's known as the great potter who molds us and makes us into the image that He wishes for us, but right now I feel that He's more like a blacksmith who's…Continue
I'm posting this to get a feel out there for the other tastes that one may achieve through different tunings. I've mainly only played in standard, but I'm starting to play in DADGAD more and more.…Continue
"Ok, Gaither/U2 is a little much, but throw some nice rockabilly chugs and riffs with some in-your-face slapback at some of his stuff, and some of those wheezy old tunes might start sounding more lively. Maybe not every Sunday,…"
"I had my first session with the delay, and that's one of the settings I might find most immediately useful. A bit of the analog setting with maybe a 150-200ms slapback, but maybe with a second echo with a fairly good dropoff in…"
"Gaither/U2 - Oooooh noooooo!
Give some slap back delay a chance in worship. I use some very short slapback and it helps give punch and attention to the notes. I'm not referring to major springy country slapback, just some quick delay notes…"
"Ok, I finally settled for the DD7. I still feel the need to know how, but am under no compulsion to use this on an actual song, other than perhaps some ambience. I foresee that I would have to re-tap to the tempo of the pianist…"
"I just wrote a review of the TC Electronic Flashback x4. I just purchased it and would HIGHLY recommend it for a great tap tempo delay. It has great options and fantastic tone. I've used many delay pedals in the past, including: Line6 DL4,…"
"I've not found a lot of place for delay in worship either, but I do own one and have fun with it at home. At times, I use it for slapback, but anything beyond that gets drown out. I think I'm going to start throwing some slapback on my…"
"It's just another tool, but obviously not one you feel you need for the job you do.
I quite like having a wide tonal palette available, even though some weeks I might have never touched some sections of it. Presently I'm not playing at…"
"When I'm afflicted with a desire to add to my rig, it takes a couple of different forms. With the Timmy, I loved what I heard in demos, and since I've never cared for the mid-boost OD sound, I was very pleased with the flat…"
"Greg - I've owned and used a CC pretty much since they were first released. It's a very pleasing delay, sweetly warm and with a nice open and organic sound, and is my favourite delay pedal. There are several ways mine sounds good:
"I listened to some examples of digital vs analog delay last week and almost bought an MXR Carbon Copy pedal last night. Then my wife asked, "What are you going to use that for? Is it a tool or a toy?" I thought about it for a…"
"Yes, I don't own the TC, but I've played through it and lust after it. I can't justify buying it right now as I already have a Hardwire and like it. But if I was in the market, it would be the TC. The other two don't do much for…"
"I'm looking for a Delay Pedal/Looper to use with both Electro-Acoustic/Electric guitar. The delay will be used in a effects loop or after a Blackstar HT-Dual for the Electric or between the Guitar and PA for the…"
"I do have an old Dunlop Crybaby which is only for home use. It's set up from the factory in the way that many people try to mod theirs to sound like Hendrix. Not much use for the 70s cop show theme wocka-wocka sound in modern worship,…"
Song-writing, guitar, singing I guess, leading in music
Alright, I'm not technically the worship pastor at my church. I lead the worship for our youth group every Sunday evening, and I play in our morning service praise band at electric guitar.
I'm wanting to become a full-time music pastor soon, and I'm trying to pick up all the experience I can. Music is where my heart is. I praise God and thank Him a hundred times for giving me my passion for music and for allowing me to use it in a way that honors and glorifies Him.
I'm hoping that people will not see me and that I won't try to be like some rock star or something. I'm just hoping that people can see the heart of God reflected through me and that as I lead in worship, they will be able to forget that they're in a public place and just let everything out before their Heavenly Father.

I really have a deep appreciation for good, solid acoustic rock music. I also really like piano ballads, electric rock (not heavy rock, but alternative, "happy rock"), and big orchestral/choral pieces. Normally I respect and appreciate most all styles if they are done very well.
I grew up in churches that sang from the hymnal, so I've always appreciated the traditional hymns and the black-and-white messages they convey. I like the fresher, modern music a little more just because I enjoy the energy and dynamic emoting that is delivered through it.
Obviously, worship isn't about feelings, but God designed music to pull on our heartstrings and to stir us in a heart of praise and worship. Music is, after all, a sensation, and God is a God of great sensation! Look at this world He's made just for us!
Glad you made it here! I told you it was an awesome site. So blessed to see God doing such great things in your life. I know He has great plans for you. Just stay close to Him and open to His Spirit. Then don't be afraid to follow where He's leading. Can't lose....can't miss! Selah!
