I've noticed that numerous people on TalkBass, like myself, are players for churches. I've never really gotten a chance to talk to many other church bass players so i thought i'd take the chance to pose some questions to you all. For starters, do you guys ever have to play stuff that, as far as the bass goes, is boring? Stuff like the simple 1,4,5,4 groove. And does the band leader goes off on you for trying to "spice things up?" Another thing is, what praise songs are your favorite to play from a bass standpoint? Stuff with a funky gospel groove or what? My personal favorite is "You Are Good" by Israel Houghton cause i get 8 bars where i get to improvise a solo This is the sort of thing that i've been wanting to talk about since i've started playing bass with my church but since i don't know many other bass players it's kinda hard...Well to all the church guys out there, keep on rockin for God!
