Thank you for proof reading 🙂 I do miss things here and there as it’s not my forte.
Brian, brother what a blessing, inspiration, and Spiritual influence you carry. These tutorials are instilled with the anointing to instruct and give/share what God has truly blessed you with – “all spiritual blessings in Heavenly places” and to “boldly go into the world and preach the gospel” which includes music and our voice as the body of Christ. There are no words to express my gratitude…I pray the Deuteronomy blessing over you…in every area of your life. I don’t know if I would have attempted this song without your help. I have always been fascinated and excited about Peter “getting out of the boat and walking on the water!” One of my life verses…’just get out of the boat and focus on Jesus!!! This song will be forever in my heart – even if….. Your arrangement of this song is powerful and inspiring. Again, you are blessed to be a blessing!!! Shalom, Bren
You have helped me learn so much! I was a total beginner and now I can do so many different things on the guitar now! I still have a lot of trouble picking up strumming patterns though; especially on a song called “Jesus Got Heaps of Lambs” that is really popular with the young people at my church and youth group that I lead. I would like to be able to play it, but I keep getting muddled up with the strumming pattern. I was wondering if you could help me? Blessings, Tia.
Thanksa lot for the article post.Much thanks again. Fantastic.
I ran a worship team training evening on this very subject some months ago. Here are a few of my notes: First, preparation. Have the tools. Be prepared lyrically. Consider words/phrases from the song you’re singing, words/phrases from other songs, words/phrases from what the worship leader is repeating. Be prepared spiritually. Sing words/phrases from scripture that you’ve studied recently, or that exalt God. It’s ok not to sing and just be in the Lord’s presence. Be prepared musically. Figure out some holding patterns” on your instrument to maintain the flow of sound, such as a simple I to IV chord sequence. Learn how to pull the dynamics right back and build it up. When does it happen? Listening for a trigger. The worship leader might say “Lift him up with your voice / in your own words”, or start repeating an end line, or start a completely different but simple lyric. They might start singing in tongues. There may be a hand signal to the rest of the band when the leader is going off plan! Anytime you’re coming to what might be the end of a song, look up at the leader to catch any direction. Prepare the congregation. Pray for God to move. Pray for the church to be open. Don”t try anything too complicated or adventurous to begin with, and always provide a spoken framework. Don’t be in a hurry this is moving people out of their comfort zone which takes time. If it goes right, pass the glory to God!
