Hey guys I've started looking for a partner in crime for a duo. Most likely a guitarist who sings and has a PA because I don't. I sing and play guitar as well as bass so we can switch things around for some variety which should be cool. I ran a CL ad last week and have gotten a couple of promising responses so it's all good. My plan is to hammer together a couple of sets of covers (the usual suspects: blues, classic rock and oldies) and try to book us into restaurants, coffee houses, farmer's markets, etc. I've been looking for existing threads on this and other forums and have found very little. Maybe I'm searching the wrong things but I figured it would help me and probably some other people here to have a thread dedicated to discussing the small combo format. My only ground rule is please don't argue about originals vs covers. I happen to enjoy playing mostly covers with a few songs I've written thrown in. But I know many of you will be singer-songwriters who favor this format over a full band. Let's talk about that and not genre. Thanks I hope to hear from some of you who are playing in small combos and those who are thinking about it.
