Alright guys, here's my situation. My band has had troubles finding a member to fill the "4th slot" to make it seem complete and has been functioning as a three piece for 2 years (the occasional guy here and there......if u've read my posts you'll hear about me kicking out this one guy who was in the band at one point a total of four times because noone was available). It's basically been me, a drummer, and a singer playing punk. Recently I've listened to a band called "pig destroyer", where they utilize a similar lineup of one GUITARIST, one singer, and one drummer. While they are more thrashy, I read at one point they were listed as "one of the top 10 most important bands in metal" and it got me thinking. Is it really so rediculous for me to do something similar after so much time spent on this project? In this band we've filled the void of the guitar/2nd bass by writing guitar like riffage, me dialing in a sound through my amp that projects both guitar and basslike aspects along with using heavy distortion, and the chemistry just seems so good between the three of us through the music that it just seems like whoever tries to join us could ruin it. I guess my question is, would it seem really weak to bring out a lineup like the one I have onto stage if it sounded good?
