Question by : What are some alternatives to having a bassist in a band?
My band just lost our bassist, and not too many people I know want to play bass or even know how to play bass. I was thinking a little bit about alternatives to bassists… I know keyboards or piano could be one, are there any other ones? It sounds kind of empty when there isn’t a bass, and if you’ve heard the White Stripes or Japandroids live, they don’t really live up to their recordings as well as tradition 3 or 4 piece groups (in my opinion). Any ideas?

You could get another guitarist and have them play at a lower tuning.
