An electric guitarist is a double edged sword for most worship leaders and worship teams.
But we Love a Great Electric Guitarist, Right?
Yes, we do, we all love a guy who can play an electric guitar like Santana! But most of us know that that can play out one of two ways.
First, you might find an electric guitarist who loves Jesus, loves to serve and sees him or herself as a servant, serving Jesus with genuine humility and self sacrificing obedience.
Or, secondly, you might get an electric guitarist who might love God, but they want to be the star of every show, playing loud and dominant over everyone else and who wants to make worship their domain.
Now you might think this is a bit harsh on your average lead guitarist,but having ministered in worship for more than 30 years, I must say it is a label that is often lived up to.
Yet over the years, I have shared the stage with some absolutely awesome and very humble guitarists! The thing is, your guitars can be a huge asset, of a massive liability, and you have the ability to she them into one of the other.
Listen to this podcast and learn how to make your electric guitarist one of the greatest assets of your worship team. Or you can just let them play lead solos all over your worship, or just keep telling them to turn down 500 times a day. It’s your choice, so we would recommend that you listen to this podcast with an open heart.
We are here for you, in this terrible time of world wide crisis, and we will have a special edition of the worship podcast coming up for you. Stay tuned, and stay safe whether isolated in your home or out and about…
