keyboarders in a praise team - 03/07/05 08:18 PM
if there are any keyboarders that play for a church praise team or something, i was wondering what kind of techniques you use. i know some keyboarders are very reserved with their playing, and others who play throughout the whole song.

Most of the ones I've seen at local churches are pretty reserved and simple with their playing. I know one exception, but she was a performance major and taught at university.

Well, I actually pretend that I'm Southern Baptist, and beat the HELL out of it...
Really, just kidding! :p

I play keyboard in a praise band and I'm kinda schizophrenic. During contemporary-type songs I do a lot of improv along with the other instrumentalists, but during traditional songs and responses (e.g. Gloria Patri, Doxology, etc.) I play more by the book. Otherwise the geriatric lifetime members would probably shoot me.
