Recently i broke up with my band because my guitarist and drummer didn't agree on a genre to play. In the old band I had played bass but i am much more proficent at keyboard. I am now starting a new band with the drummer and a different more talented bassist and i was wondering wether or not i could lead the band with a keyboard playing as the guitar. I set the keyboard up on a clean guitar setting and ran a distortion pedal through it and it sounds exactly like a guitar. I am also the singer. with this arrangement do you think there is a shot at having a well rounded and good band?

maybe, but why not just play guitar? can you not play and sing? plus, playing chords just wont have the same effect, and soloing will be even harder, how would you bend notes? itd be cool if you put a whammy pedal with it..

So I just woke up sitting in my desk chair, with my bong on the desk in a bunch of little pieces and my hand super glued to my penis. Speculations as to what the hell just happened and how to unglue my hand from my member would be appreciated.

sounds nice, but why dont just play with regular keyboard sound? Stuff like ben folds five or even Emerson Lake & Palmer

it's good to be different.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Pitch bender.

Maybe not the thing your going for, but I'd say check out the Dresden Dolls and KirsteenYoung. Both are Piano + Drums.

Fender American Telecaster
Boss OD-2
EHX Small Clone

Two words: Prog rock.

Why are you only going with a trio? Any reason you don't want a guitarist? That way you could get guitars and use the keyboards to make other sounds.
