Hey praise & worship bassists, Couple of questions... 1. How many songs per set do you guys and gals do for a Sunday morning service and/or Wednesday evening service? 2. Do you mix up contemporary and traditional? (hymns and Hillsong for example?) 3. Do you just play a complete set of however many songs without interruption, or do you pause the worship for a spoken psalm or a word of the spirit from the congregation? 4. When you sing/play a song, do you perform the entire song, or do you sometimes just jump to the chorus and do a medley of choruses together for impact? The reason I ask is our praise & worship team has hit a rut for the past year or so. We've gotten stuck to doing only three songs (seems short to me) and the songs are in a pattern. The first song is uptempo, the second song is medium tempo and then the third is a slow tempo worship tune. Often before the third song, one of the singers will speak an inspirational message, statement or psalm to gather the congregation to move into the worship phase of the music. Then its over and the pastor moves on stage to pray and then begin his sermon. So we started talking at the past couple of rehearsals about changing it up from week to week. Doing more songs, doing less, changing up how we sing the songs (chorus only, etc). Trying to remain fluid but also making sure that we are following the lead of the Holy Spirit. I'm really interested in hearing how some of you guys out there are doing it already and any suggestions anyone might have. Thanks!
