Worship Hand Signals 1-3: Verses 4: Pre-chorus 5: Bridge C: Chorus Pointing to the floor: Tag Open hand (5 turned sideways): Repeat a line or section. As you become more familiar with each song, you will know how much to repeat on each particular song. Or look for a vocal cue from the leader of that song. 2 fingers pressed together (turned sideways): We’re going to the next song, usually used when we medley two songs together or when the next song in the list overlaps with the current song that we’re on. Holding and apple: Band continues to play current chord progression while vocalists free praise (instead of singing the words) Pinky in the air: Instrumental - Band continues to play with no Voices Fist: A stop in the middle of a song or this also signals the end of a song. Another signal with a fist: Such as C – Fist….. voices will sing the chorus while instruments stop playing. Finger circle in the air: Instruments join back in with the vocalists after a stop. Pointing to one instrument: That Instrument alone plays, or if it is after a stop and we are layering instruments back in rather than everyone coming back in together. Thumbs up: Signals a key change. Always written in the music Flat hand pulling down: Cue to pull down the feel (not the tempo). Hand motioning “come with me”: Build it up (again not the tempo)… I’ll have to show you this one because I have no other way of explaining it
