Back on drums this week. There's something about sitting down at the kit, coffee on the side, ready to play, that is so comfortable.
I like to return to that 'comfort zone' to re-assert my confidence, which I so readily sacrifice when I lead.
During sound check, Matt (keys) started playing some very 'House' type chords as an intro for the old Matt Redman song, 'It's Rising Up'. I'd love to have played a little more with it as an idea, but we had to stay focused on the morning. Though it's one of the things I like the most about playing with Matt; his Dj Ezra persona and some of his creative ideas for remixing songs.
We were looking at healing and God seemed to really move. There was lots of what I would call 'doing church' and lots of little groups of people praying with and for each other.
I felt the band was a little loose today. I'm not sure why. We launched 'Indescribable' today and maybe it's because I don't think we've really got the vibe right on the song. Great song though.
It's Rising Up - Matt Redman
