Lyrics: Simple, personal. I/We not generational large scale.
Transitions are huge.
Does a song fit with the vibe of the services?
Every song has a different feel.
Don’t do 2 songs that have the same personality.
Take people on a journey with you songs.
Use familiar choruses for transitions.
The National - more intimate vibe.
Never be married to you idea, always be able to change.
Figure out your worship personality.
In rehearsal do a service walk through. What does the vibe look like. Bring the team on board. Show them how their part fits in the big picture for the day.
Someone needs to listen for how things should sound. Just because you can play it well doesn’t mean that it sounds good.
Production should be able to speak into the sound of the morning. Ask questions, what do you think about it? What do you hear?
