2 string fretless bass and also playing bass and percussion simultaneously,that's very cool!JoePasko2002 said:I normally just stick to percussion in our acoustic group. But our regular bass-player was recovering from oral surgery and could not make our monthly restaurant gig last Thursday; so I brought out my custom-made 2-string fretless bass, and covered for him. (When we work on new songs, I make it a point to learn the keys and chord changes, etc., even though I am playing percussion. That proves helpful, because our bass player is in another band as well... so if it's not oral surgery, it could be a booking conflict that requires me to step in as fill-in bassist.)
I put together a small percussion rig for that gig, too. Attempted some musical multi-tasking.. playing bass and inserting percussion here & there, where I could.
theremin: does one actually play a theremin or do you just wave your hands around and make strange sounds? We had a band with a theremin visit Whitehorse recently and the guy used an autotuner box so it only played in tuned steps. It kind of wasted the infinite soundscape nature of the beast and I had to wonder what the point of doing it was. The guy was more or a performance artist so he liked waving his arms in time to the music and didn't need to worry about pitch control.tacosthecrow said:vibrophone, theremin, guitar, congas
