Short backstory: My current band (vocals/guitar/bass/drums) have spent 3-4 years without a permanent drummer. During this time, we've played a number of acoustic shows with just vocals and two acoustic guitars. Now we have a drummer and can finally do proper shows once Covid restrictions are over, but we want to keep playing acoustic shows now and then too. The drummer will probably use a cajon and percussion setup, and the guitar player will of course play guitar. The question is: What will I play? I never liked unplugged lineups with just an acoustic guitar and a bass, so that choice was easy. But with some proper percussion behind us, will the bass suit the music better, or should I keep playing guitar to fill out the "front" of the music more? There's obviously not one right answer here, but I'm looking for experiences from people who have been in the same situation, or maybe examples/videos of bands who have made one or the other alternative work for them. If I end up playing bass for acoustic shows, I'll also need to look into what sort of tone I'll want. I'm not a big fan of acoustic bass tones (although I'm not totally opposed to the idea), but my Ibanez SR basses might not be quite the right tools for the job either Maybe some sort of passive, mellow, possibly semi-hollow bass might fit the bill nicely?
