Hi all, I'm new to the forum so be kind!

I'm interested to see if anyone has any ideas of how to fill the sound in a 2 man band? Me and my friend work really well together, and we lack musicians in our area that are our friends, and I'd rather work with people I know well to be honest, (music wise).

So we would like to play live shows soon but it's still sounding a bit empty as there's only two of us. I play the piano, bass, guitar, drums and sax, but I cant play them all at once unfortunately! My friend plays the guitar and bass really well.

For example: if my friend plays the bass and I play the guitar, it sounds quite empty as there's no drums or anything. Similarly, if he plays the guitar and I play the piano, it still sounds empty and we want more of a punchier sound to our live performance.

Royal blood use a series of pedals on their guitar which works well.

Loop pedals work well but are limited to an extent

Drum machines work but don't look great when played live. Alt J get away with it I suppose.

It's annoying as we play in a variety of genres, were open minded and play things from reggae to hip hop to rock, and we're not sure what direction to take the music down as the setup matters a lot when theirs only two of you.

Very long winded sorry, but thoughts would be appreciated unsure.gif

babe, we're a bunch of gays who listen to cheap eurotrance and strictly female power vox, acts such as adelen, indila and sofia marinova and we create our own song contest based on eurovision and we make up countries and identities to go with these songs and there is a veto and everything. a place where people speak a nonsensical language in the 'shoutbox' where the same joke is repeated to ad infimum for days but keeps going. a place where people request the pop bars for itunes, last available in a version many years ago. where threads in the pop music forum must be standardised across the board. the nearest any poster here has come to a musical instrument is the odd snapchat of some lad's cock.

i hope this response has helped you with your quandary.

Yeah I shortly realised afterwards that there's no real purpose to this forum, it's just full of internet nerds who seem to talk nonsensically. Oh well, I was ridiculously high last night and thought this was a big music site LOL. But yeah, you guys continue to enjoy that snapchat of a cock.. Or are you sure you didn't just walk past a mirror, prick.

Buzzjack's advertised as "Latest chart music and entertainment news" when you google it, did you really expect it to be a forum full of musicians?!?

my friend kath lives locally to you, she can play meghan trainor ep tracks on the trombone (strictly ep only please), she's also fluent in itunes zambian.

that should give your sound some definition and hopefully take your act in a worthwhile direction

what went up Nintendo64's bum that hes acting like this??????? na na na na na come on NATCH

if u must know i really think maybe pre-recording a backing track and having that play along as well works, it's not the greatest for a live setup or w/e but duos such as purity ring either have bits recorded on their instruments / backing tracks and then pad it out wiht the most important sections

Since you play the piano, you could use a synthesiser or something and make different instrumental music before merging them together in a backing track?
