Is it normal in a church rehersal setting to focus amost exclusively on the singers? At our rehersals the only time the the band gets to work on the song is when we are actually playing it. There is never any time for us (guitar, drums, keys, and bass) to discuss what each of us should play. We all have to improvise on the spot and thats pretty much what we do when playing on Sunday. To me, we are really cutting ourselves short. If we as the band had time to really work out the music for these tunes the singers would sound much better because everything would be tighter and the floe of the music would seem to have more direction. Just curious if I'm the only one in this situation. I try my best to do what I can with what I have but sometimes all the instruments need to be on the same page.
