Subtitle: The Worship Guide for Bands
Release date: June 2003
The Gig Guides series is designed to provide musicians with a blueprint for building bands. We select the songs, put 'em in order, and show you how to play 'em. The format is simple; there are no unwieldy note-for-note scores to sightread or complicated theory to understand. Just here's the lead sheet, here are the parts you really need to know, and away you go! These book/CD packs are the ultimate do-it-yourself kit for gigging musicians and up-and-coming performers alike. Can be used by a full band or individual players.
How To Use the Gig Guide:
This book is laid out with the contemporary praise and worship band in mind. The setlist we have selected includes what are now some of the standards of contemporary praise and worship songs sung in churches all over the world. Arranged for a four-piece band with vocals (including some four-part harmony arrangements), the songs are sequenced in an order to flow in lyrical content and lead the congregation into the intimate worship of God. Use it in rehearsal and performance, following along with the lead sheets and individual parts. Each song includes:
A Lead sheet with chords, melody, and lyricsAn overview page with song facts, song form, and performance tips for the full bandA page of guidelines for each band member, including crucial parts and performance tips for vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums.Overview pages contain some information that might be useful to leaders as introduction ideas, how to bridge one song to the next, lyrical insights, and some Scriptural references. Parts and performance tips are written by professional musicians and those who have led worship in contemporary music for years. If all band members follow their parts in the book and the accompanying CD, the band rehearses well, and your hearts are right, you will be gig-ready in no time.
About the CD
The audio CD represents a live run through the setlist by a four-piece group. The songs are played in the most standard, tried-and-true arrangements for vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums. In order to cover the vocals as recorded, the band should include three of four vocalists. For those who have ample singers but not a full band, the instrumental mixes can be used as backing tracks. They can also be used as background music as a congregation disperses.
