You guys should check out this clip from Jim. He says:

    "We played this in church today .. it was my first effort in Worship. I was on the whistle .. my wife on the keyboard ... my oldest daughter was singing and my youngest daughter was on the board. I was very nervous but Phil 4:13 says I can do all things through Jesus who strengthens me and I called upon that and got through it. I also played short endings on two other songs so that helped get rid of some of the nerves. Whistle was the Judy C.

    I am not sure I would have tried this if Micheal and Tommy had not come for a visit. Pushing more air through the whistle helped a lot and gave me the confidence I needed to give it a try."

It's "Lamb of God" on the Praise Clips page.

Lovely! Expect that your worship leader may call upon you more often, Jim.

Nerves were bad at first ...but really enjoyed it once I got going. I like to play .. and in worship even better.

Appreciate the remarks

Jim

Yeah, no kidding. I thought the whole arrangement was great, and it must be even more satisfying to play with your family. :)

That's a wonderful clip, Jim! Your playing is cool, and your daughter has a beautiful voice.

Good job Jim! I am not sure how I might have encouraged you but am glad you took Tommy's advice about "pushing" more air through the tube. I have been working on that the last few days myself, having to be careful because now I am over-blowing the bell notes on a few whistles.

Glad to find someone else that likes to stay on the hymn's, they just seem to go with the whistle...... I noticed you kept the tune slow.... didn't go "peppy" like we both have a tendancy to do :mrgreen:

Thanks for sharing with us.

Peace,
Micheal

LOL! Micheal .. I played a tune and you said it sounded good ... that gave me the courage to try it Sunday. It wasn't until a little while ago that I thought ... he could have meant the sound of my whistle and not my playing!!! :shock: Too ... late!

I played it like my wife told me to play ... and peppy wasn't what she wanted ...and I have been married long enough to know that if momma ain't happy .. ain't nobody happy! :laughing:
