heya just got back from rehearsal and wanted to share an interesting story with you, and get your thoughts. firstly, let me ask that this not become a flame war about ERB etc. we have been playing a song by Oasis in the original key of C. Although we all love it, and our crowd sing along and dance, it was painfully obvious that our singer struggled in the chorus. We were all about to agree to drop the song entirely, when the singer suggested we transpose the song into Bb. Easy! As i played the line in the new key, I realised that without a 5 stringer, it would be almost impossible to transpose down a full step with any success. I got to wondering how I would play the line on my 4 banger. So when I got home, I messed around on my 4 and realised that the only way I would be able to play the Bb line would be to detune. Anyone else have this happen to them? I mean, at the end of the day, the whole band has to sound great, and I would be happy to detune to ensure that my singer could succeed. Any other stories or ideas on this one, folks?
