I'm on a Bruce Hornsby streak. I'm absolutely in love with his music. Yes, Bruce Hornsby. Piano solo after piano solo. I'm inspired.
My band's doing Chris Tomlin's "Holy Is The Lord" this Saturday. It's originally done in A# or something, and the girls have to scream it... so I pulled it down to a G. It's still a bit of a 'belty' kinda song, but at least we don't have to scream. I would've loved to play the song in F# (the nicest key - it maintains the reach that you feel, but doesn't get too chesty-sounding as it does in F) but my guitarists and keyboardists would've murdered me.
(I said "chesty". Heh.)
It's a glorious song though. Absolutely gorgeous. Let's hope the congregation can handle it. And we're doing good ol' "Let Everything That Has Breath" (Matt Redman), but for some reason it's gone from jangly pop to this extremely crunchy, distorted rock number that I basically shout like a punk singer the whole way through. It's hilarious.
Going to the zoo tomorrow for a school project. Should be fun. It's Divali!! Some special elephant's gonna be there!
