Band Turmoil

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by pelvicfury, Jul 1, 2002.

  1. Last Thursday my guitar player quit our band. I don't know what to do now. He was mainly a rythm player with the occasional lead. We still have our other guitarist, but I don't know if we can cut it with one guitar. Do we search for a new guitarist or become a power trio? Being a three piece might mean makeing sacrifices. Any advice?? If anyone knows a good old school metal guitarist looking for a band, let me know...

    One of my bands was forced to become a trio, and the musicality skyrocketed! We became an awesome band, and I really grew as a musician.

    I'd see this as a positive thing. There's more room for you and your remaining mates to flash your chops.

    I had the same type of experience as Woodchuck... Was in a four piece blues band when the keyboard player decided he was tired of gigging. After some trepidation about moving forward as a trio, we went for it and became a much tighter band. Much more room for me as a bassist... Unfortunately, that band broke up after 5+ years...
