Yo I'm a pizza dude!
that's about it... serve people by day, play guitar by night-
maybe a little catfishing and theological debating as well...
Anyway, was trudgin' round the web looking for ideas.
I'm about to buy an agile AL-3000 (les paul clone) but i've never played anything but a cheap acoustic guitar (but I had collected certain playing skills from secular artists before my own Transfiguration ;]). The idea of pedals makes me quivver as i don't have any idea as to what does what. My church wanted my assistance on stage, but i don't have any idea where to delegate my limited resources. What pedals are absolutely necessary for music of the likes of Casting Crowns on the hard side and Chris Tomlin on the soft side? Any light shed on the situation would be graciously accepted. Oh, and even if you think it's just slightly too high in price lemme know, my church family I feel is willing to help. Oh, and a worship community forum was a great idea for people like me.
Wanting to worship God in a secular atmosphere without hard-hearted people turning away altogether? (I always feel awkward) There was a man named Rich Mullens that had many songs simply about living in and with God through the tumult of life. Many are slightly beyond my capabilities, but are beautiful songs. Most can be played on an acoustic guitar, or piano. Some are played on obscure instruments like dulchimers. He's a cool (and kinda goofy) guy.
Welcome to TWC, Winsten! Glad you found us. I can't help you on the guitar front, but there are LOTS of people a part of this community who can offer some "sound" advice. Heehee. Sorry for the pun. Thanks for jumping in. You'll find some really great conversations here. Blessings!!!
