Girls Night Out

Acoustic debut

Today, I broke it out.  I played my acoustic for the 1st time in a service (We did Charlie Hall's "Marvelous Light").  I wasn't a distraction, but I wouldn't say my chops were all that (my audio guy is a good guitar player - he was very kind to me after I threatened him not to mess with me!). Of course, I videotaped the song so could analyze how it worked in the room..it came off better than I felt it did.  It's an ego thing for me - I have been playing keys for 30 years now (yes, I started when I was about 4 or 5 - you can do the math).  It has been a humbling experience for me to put myself out there and feel so incapable.  I have a long way to go, but I had to do it.  I made a commitment to myself this year that I would play in a service by Easter and I did.  So to Mike Brown, Daniel Hoover, Brett Younker, and all the other guitar players that I have mooched off the last 5 years for help to learn the guitar, thank you for your investment in a keyboard player that sings and now plays acoustic...
