Ok sorry for that misleading title
So, my real question goes like my band has three guitarist, [ including me, excluding the bassist] out of which none can be asked to back out [for some emotional reason which I may not disclose]. I have offered to play the synth but no one is ready for this just because they honour me as one of the best guitarist in town.
So will it be wise to go on stage with 3 guitars, that too for our debut gig?

A woman, eh?

Get rid of her.


On a serious note, write music for 3 guitars or you're gonna have problems. Use a lotta harmonized melodies, layered guitar work and shizz.

Tell them to either "let you" play the synth or one of them switches instrument. Three guitarplayers is very difficult to pull off.

What do you guys play? Are you the better player? I don't understand why they won't let you go to the keys, especially since you're offering.

Walk in carrying a piano, and say 'I'm Croix and I'm here to tinkle the keys, beehatch.'

Nobody's going to argue with a guy who can carry a piano.

Indeed. The only "emotional" reason viable for not asking one of them to gtfo is if you're having sex with both of their sisters.

If not, then, well. Yeah. Pussy.

Sounds like someone's a chubby chaser.

Seriously though, 3 guitars is pretty hard to pull off unless you're playing some pretty complex prog stuff, which would sound cool if you could pull it off.

in most cases a third guitar is totally stupid but there are some bands with great material for 3 guitars

if really can't split up, play with 3 guitars, but get ready to change A LOT in your music style
#27
You could also have:

-One guitarist play rhythm, one play a lead, then the other harmonize the lead.
-One guitarist play rhythm, one play lead, and the other make feedback noises and ambient bull****.
-One guitarist play rhythm, one play lead, and one guitarist shred wanks nonstop in a corner. You turn him way down so no one can really hear him, just tell the audience that he is 'the technical aspect of our show, for all you critical f*cks'.

To be honest, all of those options would sound pretty awful though. In all seriousness, if you ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE 3 guitarists, just have a rhythm and lead and have the third guitarist play the exact same thing as one of the other two. That, too might sound pretty terrible unless you have the sound balanced okay, and even then...eh...

I'd say one person plays rhythm. The other 2 play lead, mostly harmonies. It'd depend on what kind of music you'd be playing though. I wouldnt have all 3 playing together all the time though, as it may sound a bit cramped.

Back to the original, more interesting problem:

This can be solved by the old Speed Of Light Equation.

How do you fit a 1.4m spaceship into a 1.2m space garage?

The answer is to make it travel at the speed of light. it becomes thinner due to sheer velocity and can now fit.

So just make your two pigs go at the speed of light, and fly them into your barn.

But surely, for the spaceship to actually go into the space garage, it must also be travelling at the speed of light, which would then cause a similar effect on the properties of the space garage?
