  • Finally decided to commit...

    So after years of being a basement hobbyist, I finally decided to jump outside my comfort zone and start playing with our church group. Sure, it's not flashy or probably respectable to most of you here, but I figure it's the best way to start playing with other musicians in a minimum pressure environment. I'm actually pretty excited to get the opportunity to expand my abilities and get thrown into the fire so to speak.



    That being said, to those of you who play in church groups, what song recommendations can you give me?

    Congrats man. I think you'll find that while a lot of people here aren't into the church scene, they still respect it. I go to church with family once a year for Christmas and the band they have is rockin

        I've never played this type of music and I'm not really a Chrisian but Dave Mathews "What Would You Say?" and his live version of Willie Nelson's "The Maker" would be great. The main song from Man of La Mancha is pretty deep too.

            Try some Lincoln Brewster for up-tempo guitar oriented stuff (he's a beast so be prepared to work on guitar parts). Israel Houghton for high energy rock/funk-gospel and the old standby is Chris Tomlin for worship songs.

              I Cum Blood - Cannibal Corpse.



              but seriously learn some Dredge songs. The stuff from catch without arms has a christan-y vibe to it.

                  Anything by Hilsong or Chris Tomlin.

                  Seriously, 80% of the stuff we play in church is covered there. It is also fairly fun. For mostly acoustic stuff it is hard to be Caedmon's Call.

                    Thanks for the recommendations - I'll see if Slayer is cool with them for sure.



                    I'm not huge into the Christian scene myself, but it's not something that I'll let stand in my way of getting better.

                            Good idea. Playing with other musicians is always good.

                              these two links show what most churches are playing since its based on the licensing reporting that they do. very much on the beaten path, but start here - the tunes cover what you need to know
