A few weeks ago, our music team was invited to perform at the Capitol grounds or commonly known as McArthur Park here in our city for a revival night concert. We are so thankful for the great favor and opportunity that we were able to perform in front of many people. This is not actually our first time since we have been invited several times to perform at the mall, park, and many other public places.
However, we still feel that stage fright when we perform in front of the crowd. We could still feel that goosebumps and butterflies in our stomach specially my back up vocals since it is their first time to perform. With all those awesome lighting, stage effects, cool Genelec and other musical instruments, it really feels good to do a musical performance.
I just gave an advise to my back ups not to get panic and just perform their very best. Its really hard specially when you are the vocalist because you could see that all eyes are on you. So, every time I could feel that scary feeling, I just do my best and if ever I did some mistake, I just continue my performance.
Did you know the reason why guitar is the most popular instrument? its because it is the quickest and easiest instrument to learn how to play. I myself loves to play the guitar. Even though I know the basic chords, but I was able to play different songs. I have learned that with 8 simple chords or less, I am able to play my favorite songs.
So, if you’re also like me who is able to learn that handful of chords and learn those few strumming patterns along with the basics of holding and tuning a guitar, then you too will be able to play thousands of songs. And that’s the simple truth.You see, playing an acoustic guitar is rewarding. It can be simply a fun pastime hobby, or it may even lead to a professional career.
In the guitar-playing process, there are different degrees of sophistication and knowledge that a musician can reach in order to get the most out of the experience. Even when the basics of acoustic guitar are mastered, there are still more sophisticated aspects to learn. So shop elixir strings today and start to learn the basics of playing a guitar.
We have been earnestly praying that soon by God’s grace, our church will have a good lighting, sound and special effects on stage. We found a great example of an awesome stage production from a fellow partner church who has this kind of stage settings.
They have everything from lighting and sound basics and resources,music equipments such as monitor with Monitor Stands guitar center for performers and audience, sound effects and more.
We do believe that having a quality stage production will help create a world for the audience and it gives them an experience that is believable and realistic.
We have been earnestly praying for a new set of musical instruments for our church since most of it got damaged when typhoon Sendong devastated our place specially on our church a few months ago. We are so thankful that some people sent some donation and we were able to buy new bass amps. A family friend of ours even gave his old electric guitar.
Right now, we’ve been continually praying for a new drum set, buy morpheus effects pedals for the guitar, microphones and so much more. I know by God’s grace, we can have a complete set of musical instruments for our church soon.
