The piano is always so LOUD. I probably hear "turn mom up" 2-3 times every Sunday. She is a good player though.
It gets a little frustrating sometimes, honestly. lol

That's the REAL advantage to having four drive pedals on my board.
If I can't hear myself, I just keep adding drive until I can.

Fortunately, the guys who run sound like my guitar playing.
So they usually have me plenty loud. Sometimes they turn me up so high,
I can hear the leather ends on my guitar strap squeak against the strap buttons. 
If I tap on the guitar body it sounds like a drum. - lol

I wonder if this song needs a bridge? Or an ending.
A breakdown, or slower part.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BRIDGE (ending)
So, what's the moral of this story?
- Don't be like Froggy

Don't be like Froggy -
napping under - a tire
Don't be like Froggy -
your playin' - with fire

If you find yourself - in a comfy place -
about to leave - the human race
I need - to get - in your face -
or you'll be lost - without a trace
- Don't be like Froggy

That's cool. I wish we had a decent sound-guy.
My aunt had a duet with another lady today. They practiced all week.
But you couldn't even hear her singing during the song.
All you could hear was the other lady.
I felt so bad for her. I could tell she was very upset after church.

I don't use any pedals at church. I plug straight into my my Fender Acoustasonic amp.
I try to keep it as simple as I can.
Even though it gets frustrating at times. I really do enjoy playing in our praise band. I look forward to it all week.

Sketch, the bridge/ending is cool...especially if you slow it down, and throw in some of those hot blues lead licks between the lines and finish with a bluesy froggy ending.

I agree with keeping it simple. The church supplies the guitar amp.
So I don't have to bring one.The amp is mic'd inside an isolation cab.
I usually pick a basic setting for my pedals and then leave them alone.
I may make a switch between two songs.

I actually need to use pedals for the songs/style we are playing.
(Hillsongs, Bethel Redding, Vertical Church, Elevation Worship, etc.)
Pedals would not be appropriate in every setting or church.
We play pretty loud. Supposedly over 95db.

It's great that you look forward to playing with the praise band and enjoy it.

Thanks, Bunny.

I agree, it should be slower. I'll have to see how it shakes out.
Then speed it back up to a stomp for the Froggy ending. - lol
