I've been trying to get a band together for a long time now, but I've always been hit with the same problem: I don't know any musicians that aren't bassists. I know 6 bass players, one drummer that I haven't spoken to in 2 years, and 2 really crappy guitar players. So I was thinking about an alternative. I could get in touch with that drummer, who was insanely good by the way, and try to get together with him. Then try to incorporate 2 basses into the mix instead of a guitar. One of the bassists I know (the best of the bunch, by far) has a 6 string, and a 12-string (with the alternating guitar strings and bass strings), so he could cover the melody/guitar parts and keep the high-end sounding good while I keep the rhythm going underneath. I know it would be pretty hard to pull of and sound good, but I think it's a great idea, at least to mess around with. So does anyone have any thoughts or experience with something like this?
