A quick one for a Friday morning… Once the rehearsal begins, every worship team should have a “No Noodling” rule. In case you’ve been blessed enough to be unfamiliar with the concept, noodling is when a song stops, and the various instrumentalists start replaying a section…or running scales…or playing riffs from their favorite songs to impress each other, etc… I have been guilty of it in the past, so I call myself out, as well.

When a rehearsal pauses, it’s usually [hopefully] for a reason. The leader is pausing to work on a section, or work with an individual. It makes it very difficult to hear instructions being given when players are jamming full volume. If you simply must noodle [to “warm up,” for example], turn your volume down. All the way down…   :  )
