after much soul searching the lead guitarist in my band and i decided that it was best that he leave the band due to creative differences. there arent any hard feelings between us as we both realized that he wanted to play a more modern mainstream rock in an indie/punk band and that things werent working out. hes already getting started in another band but were currently left as a trio. i think id be content to stay as a trio seeing as it would give me more room to experiment but im not sure it would work as well without a second guitar player. any ideas?
Sure it can work. It will just challenge you as a guitarist and your band as songwriters. You won't be able to fall back on just solely guitar based music as much. Maybe add keyboards, cooler bass, better drums, just keep your options open.
