I started playing guitar at church. I am new to this and am learning pretty fast how to adapt. Pretty hard going from years of Kirt to church music but hey I am doing it LOL

Our piano player is amazing she can play like none I have played with, but she is what I would call old school church music. She may say she is doing a song in F and I have some trouble making what I play sound great just by playing in F. It is like her version of F, is not really F. Also, I have played with 4 different church piano players and have had the same trouble with them all. But they can all play together just by selecting a key, same with the organ play. he can swtch on the fly and keep up with her, so his system is also the same.

I was wondering if maybe there is a system they all use that I am not aware of. The worse case is that she may decide to switch to Eb in the middle of a song and she tells me she did it but I can't do it in only one take and when we are live I get only one take. I usually try to play lead not chords, since the chords are even harder to hit it seems.

Maybe, I should try a different mode?

When we get rehearsal time and can talk as we go, which is rare since she doesn't need it. I then can write something that goes really well, but on the fly I am in trouble. I am sure I need more theory, but hey, can't hurt to ask.

Any Advice?
TIA

By `it's her version of F` what do you mean? If you can find out what she is actually playing then maybe you would have some more clues as to what would sound good.

Is her piano in tune? :-)

She probably means F Major, not F minor. Most guitar players tend to use the minor pentatonic, but when someone tells you they are in F, it means F Major. Could that be the issue?
