What I don’t know #sundaysetlist #sundaysetlists #WorshipSet http://bit.ly/bVkgM2

We do some fancy stuff at our church, like lots of churches do. We synchronize two bands with loops and click tracks, we do a light show in a 3-story building with live musicians, we write some of our own kids music.  And we aren’t in the top tier — ’cause there’s lots of churches doing way more creative stuff than we are.  The point is not the fancy stuff — but what effect (if any) the fancy stuff has on the kingdom of God.

Beyond the fancy stuff, there’s a lot I simply don’t know and haven’t done. One of those is guitars — even though I lead with one the majority of the time.  Being late to the guitar game, I’m amazed at how a simple change in instrument creates interest.  Up to this point I’ve used a Variax 700, but am using a loaned American Telecaster with humbucker pickups.  In the last two weeks I’ve had more questions and comments about the guitar.  It’s funny, cause I really don’t know that much about it — but obviously there are people out there who really care.

I care about quality. Yes, I care about good guitar tone.  Yes, I care about playability.  Yes, I care how it looks and feels when you play.  But I simply don’t know enough history in guitars to know what people are into.  Case in point, up until last year I thought the guy who invented noiseless pickups had the last name “Humbucker” — until someone pointed out they simply “buck” the “hum” and are noiseless, thus called humbuckers.  Who knew?  I didn’t.  Five years ago I didn’t know what pickups where.  If you are reading this and you don’t know either, welcome to my club.
