I guess I was born with it!
« on: April 05, 2006, 03:11:19 PM »
Hey, when it comes to riffs and runs, do you think that some people are just born with it?

Ex. I sing in my college choir and I am the best riffer and runner in the choir. There are alot of people, however, who have really beautiful voices, but they aren't as good as I am. One girl has a really nice voice, but she can't run or riff for nothing. She thinks that it is because she is from a Catholic church and so she is not used to hear gospel like Clark Sisters and so on. But, i have'nt been listening to the Clark Sisters all of my life, just recently as 3 or 4 years ago and I've been able to sing like this since I was a little girl. And also there are some who are used to that type of gospel singing and who might know more about it than me, but still can't hold a candle to me in the riff and run department.

So, what do you think?

Not anymore (most of the time), but it came after years of being shy to the point that I didn't even talk to people. It took my P&W leader blindsiding me and just calling me up in front of the whole church to do a solo. I just took it from there. Thank You Jesus.
