That was awesome! The pad fit perfectly. I really like the depth and scope of the sound it provides. Great song to demo it on.
We are doing that song in our church in a few weeks. Love your Martin! D18, 28, or 35?
Have a great Sunday of worship!
Thanks Larry! It’s a Martin D-35
All of the Pads are great but I would suggest not playing such low keys on the pass because it clashes with the bass in most songs
Hi O’Shay – we created the Pads with that kind of low end because sometimes we found we wanted it in certain applications. If it’s clashing with the bass, it’s pretty easy to take care of it with a high pass filter EQ on the Pads channel.
Hey Brian, I’m really looking forward to this tutorial. Any idea when it will be ready?
Thanks for all you do!
Hey Kirk – I know this is a bit late, but it’s available now 🙂
Love these pads! I use them for prayer room worship sets as I’m playing alone to fill in the gaps and set a very worshipful tone. Great underlay for prayer sections! One note: I noticed a typo in a paragraph above. Says “capo 2 (key of C)” while playing G shapes but that should actually be key of A. Could be confusing for some if they didn’t know.
Got it taken care of – Thanks!
Can’t wait for a multitrack of this arrangement!
