I read a Network post from 2011 about using the organ in praise and worship. The main theme was resistance and how to overcome it. My problem is just the opposite. There is 100% support for using the organ in all services and with all types of music (from our Music Director down to the congregation). I have experience on the piano and organ but am rusty at the moment. I have recently resumed playing the organ and I need HELP! I need to brush up on chord structure and transitions, esp. the unusual ones. I know nothing about how to best use the organ with the praise and worship music—it is different and requires a different approach.
I think learning more about the specific organ and how to get different tones would help. I have contacted the store where the organ was purchased two different times. They said they would have the person who could help call me but that didn't happen.
I have been considering finding someone from whom I could take lessons but have been unable to find someone at this point. I have materials and previous knowledge so I am working at relearning and practicing the chord positions in each key. I also am studying the various types of chords.
I also have a complicating factor—fibromyalgia. The mental "fog" and constant headaches make it difficult for me to just read and study. However, I am praying for God's guidance and healing.
Does anyone have any suggestions?? Techniques? Resources?
Thank you for bearing with me in this lengthy post.
