My current musical project is an acoustic trio (no Tele content!). The current instrument lineup is two acoustic guitars (myself included) and a percussionist who plays a cajon (a drum thingie that he sits on). We have played several gigs and have gotten a good response, mostly by finding venues that do not have the space or money for a larger band with big amps, PA, and full drum kit. We play covers, a combination of songs that were acoustic in the first place (CS&N, Neil Young, Pure Prairie League, Simon and Garfunkel, etc.) as well as covers of classic rock songs that we do in acoustic style - Beatles, Stones, CCR, Tom Petty, etc. A few of the songs have distinctive lead guitar parts, but most do not and on a lot of them we end up basically doubling the rhythm guitar but we try to vary it a little - like one of us capoing up or playing alternate chord shapes. I had mentioned to the others that I would like to explore changing to bass, so we would just have the one guitar. That would give us a fuller sound, especially because the cajon does not have much low end, but we would lose the rhythm guitar when the other guy plays a lead. We do not want to have me switch back and forth, and have multiple instruments and amps on stage (thereby losing our advantage of being able to shoehorn into small spaces) and at this point in my life I want to keep the amount of gear I tote to a minimum. The photo below is one of the joints we play in on occasion (I'm the guy on the left). Any thoughts before I bring this up again with my group? I know we can just try it at practice but any input from the gallery would be welcome.
