(Yes. I had to look up the spelling.) I’ve been leading worship music for about 10 years, so I often find myself in the position of giving leadership to instrumentalists. It’s common for us to have a band that includes acoustic and electric guitars, bass guitar, drums, and keyboards/piano. I don’t play any kind of guitar or drum, yet those are the instruments that are usually driving the songs. So, how do I give guidance to those players if I need to?
I get ridiculed for this. Hard core, slam down, ridicule. And yet, they always end up knowing what I’m talking about, so the proof is in the whatever, right? It was suggested to me at our most recent rehearsal that I start a website called worshipleaderonomatopoeia.com. Probably I won’t do that because that’s the worst URL possible (times infinity squared).
Anyway, here we go. Those of you who play instruments or lead a band or whatever…. see if you can guess what instrumental sound I’m going for.
Yep. This is real life. Don’t you want to work with me now, like, more than you can even imagine? :) So give me your guesses. Numbers 1 through 6. What are they?
