Hello, fellow lowenders! Long story short, I'm teamed up with a female singer and pianist (synth), both good musicians and great personalities (easy going and hard working). We are into into pop/soul/R&B (or jazzy funky to a degree) kind of music. I wonder if it is feasable to work in that kind of trio. I was thinking to use a drum machine instead of drummer. In any case, the singer as a broken ankle, and won't be able to go to rehearsal area for at least a month, she proposed her living to rehearse in, so no drums possible :-\ So do you think it is possible to cover enough musical ground with two instruments and voice? What kind of songs might work well in this situation? We are ready (and will definitely have) to rearrange sogs to fit this minimalistic context. What are the best ways to exploit the synth in order to cover most musical possibilities (maybe one keyboard for rhythm piano, one for horn chords)? Tips for playing electric bass in this context (maybe effects, octaver on particular playing style)? Thanks, peoplez!
