How many times have you barely survived a soundcheck because you came unprepared?

 

For me, the number is 4753634252354986. Preparation is the key to not only playing the set well, but also to growing as a musician. But, like so many things in life…

There are right ways and wrong ways to go about preparation.

Nick Mayer, guitar player for the Christian southern rock artist, Zach Williams & a regular around here, shared with us everything he does to prepare for a set. Not all of it is just sitting down with his instrument & playing through the songs either.
