So I understand the limitations of an acoustic bass guitar, but my band leader is adamant that we play some "fully acoustic" gigs. When I mentioned bringing a small amp for the bass, she tells me no, fully acoustic. I've tried explaining that bass guitars can't compete with drums and acoustic guitars without an amp, but she doesn't think I know what I'm talking about. So I ask the experts to chime in, maybe show her it isn't just my opinion, but a fact, that am acoustic bass guitar just can't realistically compete with two acoustic guitars and a small drum kit or cahone (Not a drummer, don't know how to spell that) we also use an assortment of hand drums and percussion elements. If I'm wrong here please teach me the truth and let me know which acoustic basses can really be played acoustically.
