This week was pretty cool. We were able to do a couple of my favorite worship songs, "Face Down" being one of them. They just seemed to fit with the message (The Transfiguration, matt. 17).
Things went pretty well. We had a little trouble with some arrangements that we did. Brandon our drummer was really excited about playing a couple of the songs just like the CD, but as you know, that doesn't always work on a Sunday morning; so we had to adjust. He did a great job holding back.
So here's a couple of questions that I have for you.
1. How often do you re-arrange songs and how often do you use an arrangement as is from the album.
2. How do you usually re-arrange the songs (tempo, verse/chorus/bridge structures, keys, etc.)
3. Why do you re-arrange the songs (unsingable key, lack of musicians, too long, too fast/slow, etc.)
I'm really interested to see what your responses will be.
