El Bajo (Posted 5-22-2011)

This morning I played in the church praise band for the first time. I played the bass (el bajo). It was more difficult than I had originally anticipated for a variety of factors. For example, I had practiced all the wrong chording for most songs this week and this morning I had trouble hearing any monitors when we were on. And there is always the sense that I am missing something with my Spanish: in practice, tuning, following basic instructions, etc. But all things considered, this is a victory. The praise band members are patient and kind, and it will be fun to get to know them better. God-willing, we can celebrate this as another step in the direction of blessing our church.
