Me and a couple friends are starting a 3 piece melodic hardcore band, one guitar,bass, nd drums, all 3 are covering vocals, we are playing music like touche amore and being as an ocean and pianos become the teeth. I was wondering how well this would work and if anyone had any tips?
I know this is a few months old, but I just wanted to say that it's not too uncommon to have one guitar in melodic hardcore. If you use the right tones and write some colorful stuff on guitar that works well with the bass and drums, you'll have no problem. If you need an example, check out Birds in Row and Loma Prieta; they both consist of three members including one guitarist, one bassist, and a drummer, and they both play some of the most incredible music in the genre in my opinion.
