Despite feeling unwell on Friday (I’m still not 100% and tomorrow will call the GP to make an appointment) I still turned up to Powerpoint (the SU Scotland co-ordinated monthy youth event) to play electric guitar.
The experience of worship was incredible. God was most definitely present, and the response from the young people encouraging beyond words. There were around 340 young people there, how incredible is that!
One of my highlights was playing the descant to the Christmas carol O Come, all ye faithful which I’d transcribed during the afternoon, using the excellent Guitar Pro 4 software. You can download it, and use it if you like. It’s the version arranged by NYCGB President Sir David Willcocks
The only disappointment about the evening — apart from feeling utterly exhausted at the end of it — was that I think my amp (Laney GC80A) is needing a serious overhaul. It’s buzzing terribly, and began cutting out while I was playing.
