Sunday Setlist - Father's Day 2009
It's apropos that on this Father's Day, the setlist was put together by a father - me!! I did last week's set, as well as the one for this week. I always find the second week of our two week rotations harder, probably because I'm more excited at doing it for the first time in months on my first week. Last week's set worked out really well, and flowed beautifully. Let's see how this week's turned out.
Turn It Around (Houghton/Lindsey)(D)
Finding Who We Are (Shamburger)(G)
From the Inside Out (Houston)(G)
Arms of Love (Musseau)(G)
Blow the Trumpet (Terndrup)(Dm)
Montana (Gonzales/Gonzales/Gonzales) (Am)
Ok, I know you don't know the last two. Or maybe you do. "Blow the Trumpet" is a favorite from the early days of Gospel Light. "Montana" (that's mon-ton-ya) is a song by the Latin Christian band Salvador. The song has a kind of rancheras feel to it. And we sing it in Spanish.
"Turn it Around" I wanted to do a little different than we usually do it. We usually start it with a guitar riff (D-Am7-D-C) but I wanted a little more of the Alive in South Africa vibe to it, And of course, Justin with the "thunderstorm" sound at the end! Aquim did a great job bringing the right feel to the song on the drums.
The first song that came to me as I was praying and thinking about this list was "Hosanna." It's not on our "official" list, but I felt really strongly about it. It was just in my head all week. It was the first time we've done it since I got my Korg AX10G multi. I had a couple of patches set up for it that sounded nice, and this is one of the few songs we do that we actually play the guitar solo during worship.
I stayed with the electric during "From the Inside Out" - not my usual choice on a Sunday. I think I'll go back to the acoustic next time. It's a better "one guitar" choice with our setup, I think. For "Arms of Love" I used a swell delay that gave a nice cello-like sound. "Inside Out" went over really well, and flowed nicely into "Arms of Love."
Being Father's Day today, we did have a special presentation for all the fathers in attendance, by our 4-9 year-old children's cell group. They gave cards and balloons to all us pastors, then a copy of The Bible Promise Book to all of the fathers. Finally, the led the church in singing "Counting on God" by the Desparation Band - the version on the Integrity Shout Praises! Kids: Living for You DVD.
