#20 The Djembe
Christians took to this drum as starved dogs to a meat wagon. With this, set-up volunteers who do not have a musical bone in their body are given a chance to contribute to the band because, come on, how hard can it be to hit a drum? The sound of a poorly played Ovation* guitar with a horribly played djembe really draws people into the worship experience. It really does.
*plastic-backed, tinny-sounding guitar that must be plugged in to sound only halfway crappy. Very Nashville.
