    A keyboard-playing buddy of mine passed this on to me. Some of you may have heard this before, but for those who haven't, enjoy!

    The Lord is my drummer, I shall not rush.
    He maketh me to lay out in tasteful places;
    He leadeth me beside cool meter changes;
    He restoreth my "one".
    He leadeth me in the right repeats
    For His name's sake.
    Yea, though I read through the trickiest road maps,
    I will fear no train wrecks;
    For You are with it;
    Your ride and Your snare, they comfort me.
    You setteth up a solo for me
    In the presence of mine guitarists;
    You annointeth my lines with drive;
    My groove overflows.
    Surely good feel and swing will follow me
    All the tunes of each set;
    And I will dwell in the pocket
    The whole gig long.

    ...in the name of the bass, the amp and the holy cabinet, Amen :D
