Our first music rehearsal for Cotton Patch Gospel was very productive and possibly even a hootenanny, but I cannot confirm this.
We got through about 2/3rds of the score, which puts us in great shape for tonight’s rehearsal. There’s a great chance we’ll get the entire show roughed in before the day is through. Then we can start the surgical detail work.
Though some of us have done this show before, the musical arrangement changes based on who is performing. The songs are essentially the same, but we might be singing a different part or playing a different instrument.
Those changes can be the toughest. It’s easier to remember a drastic change than to change a small detail.
Regardless, the band is great and I’m pleased to be a part of it.
