Don't you understand? It's like Jesus is a guitar player and I am a guitar. It's like we sang in the Community Celebration of Bread and Wine this Sunday,

Perhaps this is a little-known Station of the Cross? The Roman Army was known to reserve this punishment for only the worst of criminals: an acoustic rendition of the entire Glory & Praise songbook, until the culprit begged to be crucified.

Acoustic is the only way to play the G&P, though. I realised a little while back that if you play the songs as they're written - as 70s hippie music! - it just sounds kinda silly and sweet and dated. What makes them awful is when choristers try to play them as Gregorian Chant or something equally "high" and "solemn." The two styles just. don't. mix.
