Sometimes its easy to lose creativity in music. Whether or not you like John Mayer, this music is worth paying attention to. These guys play with such great feel and really know how to use their instruments. Although stylistically this is not what I do, watching this dvd made me excited about playing and writing music. Do yourself a favor and go get the whole dvd. In the meantime, check out these clips.

What music inspires you? What sparks your creativity?

Sunday Recap
  • not often am I moved by a sermon (sorry preachers, I’m a music guy) but today was one of those times.
  • got some really good footage of Danny sleeping on the futon in my office when I showed up this morning. He stayed the night.
  • the church continues to grow despite us. People are finding Jesus.
  • the worship team had fun today.
  • Gus, our media director, is really stepping up his game.
  • the cover of John Mayer’s “Say” went real well.
  • we had a new keyboard/mandolin player today. Adam was a great addition.
  • the services seem to be evening out as fas as energy and atmosphere. I don’t feel like one is significantly better than the others.
  • people are responding well to the series. They’re showing up for more on wed and coming back on the weekend to find out what’s next.
  • I feel like the staff is on the verge of going from a good team to a great team.


Creative Chaos

Last week we covered the song, “Whatever it Takes” by Lifehouse to kick off our “The Moment of Truth” marriage series. This week we’re talking about communication and we’re covering John Mayer’s “Say”. It’s funny because we really don’t do many covers but it just worked out that way on this series. In addition, we added in clips from “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” with Brangelina. It has some good counseling scenes. Also, for a teaching opener we play “Moment of Truth” montage videos like this one.
