Setting Up A Click Track For Your Worship Team

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.

  1. We’ve been using a click track for about 6 months now. I love it! As a bassist on a team of musicians which includes some race-horses (rushing badly during builds), it was a constant stress and physical drain to hold back the band from taking off. Now I can focus on other things (worship, musical ideas, dynamics, etc..) while the metronome does the heavy-lifting of keeping the team together. It’s liberating.

  2. I forgot to mention, we don’t use the Tama metronome though I’ve heard good things about it. Our drummer used to use the Boss metronome which is also often mentioned. A metronome app on someone’s phone will do the job. It’s easy to create weekly setlists and move between songs. My preferred way to do this however is the OnSong app. I use it to view my charts and the click is associated with the chart. So as I move thru each song in the set list, the metronome automatically changes to the tempo for the song. Charts and metronome in one app automatically synched.
