what do you prefer more...I always think that one band should have Vocals,Drums,Bass,One Guitar,and Keyboards....
but do you like more another guitar insted of a keyboard.....ro some thing else?
before I started a band I was thinking that we need two guitars and a keyboad...but I then I heard Faith No More...and it's seams enofe to me...
so what do you think....smile.gif

hmm.. I think the basic should just be vocals, two guitarist (lead and rhythm) and a drum. If I had more options, I would also do a piano/keyboard in it and maybe an african-percussion-something.

I like the sound of a big band jazz orchestra, or a funk band with brass section.

So definitely, drums, bass, piano/organ, brass, horn, alt sax, tenor/bariton sax/trombone, electric guitar, maybe some percussions as well.

Well, few years ago I though that 2 guitar were the best but nowadays I prefer to be the unique guitar player and use the stereo to emulate 2 guitars (with different delay in each channel and different distortion) and have a keyboard in the band. And I wish had a violin or viola, hehe, but that's really difficult tongue.gif

I like to have it as one guitar player and a drummer, plus a bassist. Don't have a bassist to jam with now but I have a good time jamming with my drummer friend and I don't really feel anything is missing.

The guys i try and jam with sometimes are a bassist and a Drummer. The bassist can also play Drums and the Drummer and scream / do hardrock vocals.. Me and the Bassist can do singing and the bassist can also play keyboard and saxaphone..I love the idea of large bands.. 2 guitars + bass + drummer + Vocalist + keyboardist BUT if this is not possible i like the idea of 1 guitar + vocalist + bass + drums.. The other setup i like although wouldn't want is a 7 string guitar + 6 string guitar one guitarist on vocals and a drummer.. depends on the genre really...

I think power trios are cool.

My band concist of vocals, drum, bass and two guitarists.

One guitar sounds lonley, there's so much more that can be done with two - or one guitar + one keyboard.

Agreed smile.gif I like a singer that doesn't play another instrument, 2 guitarists, 1 bass and 1 drummer + one of them knows how to play keyboards smile.gif

But still I want answers, what's the point, what does all this mean?

I like a band with two guitars ( one is vocalist), drummer, Bass, and keyboard. Pretty typical I guess, but I think that it's one of the coolest setups. smile.gif

I do think its really cool to listen to bands with all kinds of instruments, but like I said above I prefer playing with 1-2 other people with a kind of black keys, nirvana, white stripes, hendrix or cream kind of thing... you feel like a mean lean machine 'cause there's nothing extra cool.gif

you have a point there...more members in the band...the more complicated it get's..,,,but if there is a solo artis paying the others...that is the diferent story...
