Family Camp Music Guy

I know what I forgot from this summer: the music guy from family camp.

I ended up playing with him a few times, since Wellspring wasn't at camp yet. He didn't have a band put together like, four days before family camp started, so two counselors and myself were going to help him out.
Now, I know that I always think people don't like me. But I didn't go into this thinking that he didn't like me right off the bat. But after a "Koz, if we play Kelly Clarkson I'm totally playing the drums" joke, things were weird. No, actually, they were weird when he realized that I was the one playing guitar instead of Jamin. Which probably would have worked out better all around.
I felt like he kind of ignored me during practice, but again, I'm a little paranoid about things like that. I knew that he wasn't impressed with my skills (or lack of, I guess), but I didn't tell him I was awesome, and I'm pretty sure Kyle didn't either.
The best part came during the Sunday morning service when he said something about being able to hear the praise in the music. "You can hear the praise in the bass, and the drums, and I hope that you can hear it in the keys (which is what he was playing)! And...and I hope you can hear it in all the other instruments too."
Let's review the band:
Nate - bass
Koz - drums
Guy - keys and vocals
Me - guitar

Praise in bass: check.
Praise in drums: check.
Praise in keys: check.
Praise in "all the other instruments": afterthought.

It wasn't horrible. It was just...frustrating, I guess.

But it's kind of funny to think about now. Which is a lot better than still being embarrassing.

Well I could hear the praise in the guitar. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's where the majority of the praise was coming from :)
