Adding a click track (metronome) to your worship team setup is easy and the video below shows you how to do it. Despite what some believe, adding a click will not automatically void the Holy Spirit from your church or kill the “feel” of your musicianship. Here are some reasons why I love having a permanent click ready to go at the church:
- It is a helpful tool to have for younger drummers, as timing is usually the #1 issue.
- You can easily reference the tempo of a song before you rehearse or lead.
- It’s a great tool for drummers in training if they use the church drumset during the week to practice.
- Your musicians can learn the art and joy of pushing and dragging against the click.
- Familiarizing your church culture with a click will give musicians a tool that will aid them if they enter a recording studio.
- If you are recording your services you can sync other musical elements later with more ease.
- Metronomes are standard tools for most world-class musicians.
- You don’t have to use it on every song, but the tool is there if you want it.
This video shows my process for setting up a permanent click (metronome) next to the drum set.
