Not positive this is the right forum, if not please move it to where it belongs. Does anyone here play guitar in a band? I know we're all bassists at heart here, but I got a response to a musician wanted ad I put in a local paper that showed more interest in me playing guitar than playing bass. The response was from a guy in Atlanta who's about to move back to Austin since he just completed a stint in the Army (he's relinquishing his rank, and going back to civilian life.) He said he's not looking for particular instruments, but it was good that I could play guitar and bass. That sounds odd to me, but I think it's more of a "looking for musicians to work with, not dedicated guitarists/bassits/whatever." I haven't heard any samples of what he wants to do, but I think it will be something close to synth pop/rock. If I'm interpreting him right, I could end up playing guitar and bass, do MIDI work (I know a bit about it,) and I'd be a factor in the songwriting process. All in all, that sounds pretty good, since I do a lot of that anyway. He even said they would provide me with guitar gear since I don't have any, except for my acoustic guitar. As of right now, the project has a vocalist (female), the Army guy who contacted me (keyboards/drum machines/etc.), a guitar player who may move to keyboards, and a drummer to audition. It's an odd lineup, but there have been odder. But at the same time, I know I'm more of a bassist than a guitarist. So I was wondering, who out there is a bassist playing guitar in a band? How does it work for you? Do you play bass in another band? Do you argue with the other bass player (assuming there is one) about what to play? Any tips on the subject in general (aside from don't act like a guitarist)? Would you recommend doing it? Regardless, I'm going to check it out. Maybe we'll click and I'll learn to perfect the guitar to bass switch in between songs.
