Nathaniel Bassey Shares Useful Tips – Worship In Truth (Spiritual And Musical Truth)


Are you A gospel artists? This Tips is for you.. Gospel minister Nathaniel bassey shares useful tips..”worship in Truth”

WORSHIP IN TRUTH…. (SPIRITUAL AND MUSICAL TRUTH)

LIKE I SAID EARLIER SAINTS, I BELIEVE IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAKE BOTH SPIRITUAL AND MUSICAL SENSE IN WORSHIP.
LETS SHARE SOME MUSICAL THINGS NOW. 

THE KEYBOARD PLAYER CONTROLS THE HARMONY OF THE MUSIC. 
THE BASS GUITAR, HOWEVER SERVES AS THE ROOT, AND BY THIS WE MEAN IT DEFINES THE CHORDS.
THE DRUMMER, AS WE ALL KNOW SETS THE RHYTHM AND
GROOVE. THESE, ARE THEY WHICH BEAR WITNESS IN WORSHIP. (LOL) THIS UNIT IS CALLED THE RHYTHM
SECTION. THE GUITARS, HORN, PERCUSSIONS ETC ARE
ADDITIONAL OR AUXILLIARY INSTRUMENTS. THESE ARE
INSTRUMENTS OF COLOUR AND FLAVOUR. WHAT DO I MEAN? UNLIKE THE RHYTHM SECTION, THESE ARE NOT EXPECTED TO DOMINATE, THEY ARE MEANT TO JUST COLOUR, SPICE UP AND GRACE THE MUSIC. SO A TRUMPET OR SAX, OR ANY OTHER AUXILLIARY INSTRUMENT SHOULD NOT PLAY ALL THE TIME. THEY COME IN OCCASSIONALLY, AND
SPARCELY. DOING OTHER WISE, MAKES THE MUSIC BUSY
AND IN SOME CASES NOISY.
THE BASS PLAYER MUST WORK WITH THE KEYBOARD PLAYER TO CREATE THE HARMONIES. WHAT I FIND AND HEAR
MANY TIMES IN CHURCHES ARE CASES WHERE THE
BASSIST JUST PLAYS WITHOUT RECOURSE TO WHAT THE
KEYBOARDIST IS DOING. THE BASS IS SO POWERFUL, IT CAN CHANGE THE COPLEXTION OF A PARTICULAR CHORD WITH EVERY PASSING NOTE. ALSO, THE BASS MUST WORK IN SYNC WITH DRUMMER. 
DYNAMICS IS SO IMPORTANT
IN MUSIC. VERY IMPORTANT. REST OR SPACE IS ALSO PART OF MUSIC. SOMETIMES, OBSERVING A REST CAN BE THE BEST SOUNDING NOTE. SOMETHING I LEARNT A LONG TIME FROM A BERKLEE MODULE IS THIS, ” TO APPRECIATE LOUDNESS, YOU SHOULD FIRST PLAY LOW, AND TO APPREECIATE CALMNESS, YOU SHOULD PLAY LOUD”. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? YOU CANT KEEP PLAYNG LOUD ALL THE TIME, AND ALSO LOW AND CALM EVERYTIME. IT IS THE
SKILFUL MIXTURE OF THESE TWO EXPRESSIONS AND USE OF
OTHER TECHNQUES OF MUSICAL DYNAMICS THAT HELP MAKE GREAT SOUNDING MUSIC. I HOPE THIS MAKES
SENSE TO YOU. SO PUT THIS TO PRACTICE TOMORROW IN CHURCH. DONT JUST PLAY, PLAY AND PLAY. SOMETIMES LISTENING TO OTHERS CAN BE THE BEST THING YOU HAVE DONE. GOD BLESS YOU.
