This week’s podcast is all about working with click tracks and backing tracks in worship.  There are some tremendous resources out there and your musicians will become all the better for using clicks.  Brian and I chat about how we use clicks and tracks in our own ministries.  This is the place to start if you’re interested in using click tracks for worship.  Here’s some of what we talk about:

  • How Brian started using clicks in his worship sets at a smaller church.
  • The standard that is brought in with using a click track.
  • How the click should be considered a member of your team.
  • How a few beats per minute difference can make a song take way too long.
  • Integrating a musical director and how it helps the whole team.  Here’s a great post about it from Jeremy McKee!
  • The worship leader and music director relationship.
  • The value of backing tracks.
  • The importance of recognizing that you don’t have to use clicks on every song or even in the middle of a song.  We talk about the heavy hit of the bridge in Hillsong Young & Free’s Sinking Deep.
  • Advice on how to begin with click tracks in worship.
  • Starting by personally practice with a metronome.
  • The resources found at Loop Community and Multitracks.com
  • The nuts and bolts of getting started.
