Well here's my situation, in a 3 piece band for now(just started up again), no singer yet. My guitarist is totally against cover songs, because every band does it... and thinks making up songs are better. Me being a bassist and all I don't mind making up our own songs, but with no singer? I enjoy playing tunes that are already done by another artist and I think it really helps develop a better understanding between all of us with timing etc. I know my guitarist will get pissed and tell me to go listen to RUSH all day if I say anything about it. If we were to land a gig at the local town fair(with a singer), would we do a few cover songs or a just all made up songs? I'm leaning towards cover songs that the audience will enjoy instead. Thoughts? Thanks.
