Weekend Review – 06-2021-09
Do you ever find it hard to focus on 8 things at once? I sure do. How do we do it? Seriously! How can you focus on your vocals, your pitch, your keyboard parts, the other vocalists, the acoustic, the electric, the bass and the drums…all at the same time. I’ve got to be honest with you, it’s been a challenge.
So, it was Father’s day, and we didn’t really do anything special for it. We showed a video and handed out a book to dads, but other than that, we didn’t really pay much attention to it.
Here was our set:
- Never Gonna Stop
- Father’s Day Prayer
- A Mighty Fortress (My Arr.)
- Your Grace is Enough
- The Stand
We finally did the stand this weekend. I know a ton of you out there have done it a lot, but it was new for us, and it seems like people like it.
We had some tempo problems this week, lots of rushing. We also had some tuning problems, both with the instruments and vocals, it probably wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t perfect (not that it will ever be). I just hate it when we have good musicians in the congregation and the music isn’t as good as it could be. I know we’re not doing the music for them, but…..
We were trying to do a transition between “Your Grace is Enough” and “surrender” with just a one beat head nod from me, and it just wasn’t working. I was trying to depict the tempo with the head nod (much like I do when I’m conducting, only that’s with my hands), and it just wasn’t happening. I think we might be able to get better at it, but not this week.
That’s what we did, for more check out Sunday Set lists over at Fred’s Place.
