Me and 3 others play in a band. we only have one guitarist and she plays with no force. even when I turn the amp we can't hear her.

I also play guitar but I play bass in the band. Is it worth trying a louder guitar or amp, going for more bass dominated songs or getting a new guitarist?

How are you all mixing together?

Is her EQ massively scooped?

Tell her to put more feeling in it and not hold back. Or, if you guys are trning her up and you still can't hear her, maybe she's not the right guitarist for you....

What kind of gear are you guys working with? Could just be that the amp isn't powerful enough.

if she can play, don't dump her for volume issues.

what sort of amp is she using? it may be that her gear simply isn't up to the task of competing with drums and a bass (you could be too loud. bassists tend to be- I'm a bass playing guitarist too). it shouldnt matter if shes playing really softly or really hard, she should be able to keep up regardless if her gear is actually up to the task

Sounds like a amp issue. So I vote New amp.

you have to determine if it is her playing or her equipment. Very simple, if she can play and matches your bands attitude and style then get better equipment to keep up. If she doesn't and she is just there because someone is dating her or she was there at the beginning then it is time to part ways musically.

You mean she's picking the strings too weakly?

Tell her to man up and play like a rock star!


If she's playing hard and you just can't hear her...

What kind of amp does she have?

If it's massively loud when she plays by herself, then you probably have an EQ issue. Have her turn the mids up.

If it's not that loud when she plays alone, make sure she doesn't have the volume low on her guitar, pedals, or amp. If it's still quiet, then she may need a new amp.

why is there a guitar and amplifier in the kitchen anyway?



In all seriousness, try to tell her to play with more feeling, or switch her to bass and you play guitar.
