Good guitar work today.  Very good use of a day off.  I keep watching the short clip from Mount Olive Baptist Church.  I realize “carbon copy” is a dated metaphor lacking contemporary punch.  Few people today know what carbon paper is.  The “xerox of a xerox,” or better yet, “copy of a copy” is a better analogy conveying that while each iteration (copy) of a mechanical copy of a document may convey the information (words) of the original, each successive copy blends blurs and blunts the impact of the original.  I had a discussion with Chris Schafer about this and he agreed that much of the worship music he and I have played on different worship teams has a generic tenor.  I’ll go further to say authentic worship must have its roots in the worship experience of the player.  Listening to the Mount Olive worship, I realized my connection to that (ahem) “style” of worship.  

Discuss amongst yourselves.
