Our band consists of a bass, me Guitarist, a lead Singa, Drummer and another guitarist. But they want another guitarist in the band can it work? or will it just coz more arguements?

Judging by the music you intend to play, another guitarist will be pointless. It will probably just end up causing problems somehow.

I agree with regression, unless you're playing more complex stuff or songs that are originally with three guitars seems pretty pointless.

If Iron Maiden can do it than you can as well but it would be pointless by looking at your set list no offence to it though.

if you're gonna have three, atleast make us of it. Harmonizing, some of the stuff done i classical music can be a good inspiration (without making it sound like classical) and stuff.

Unless you're gonna do something technical or stuff like that, I wouldn't advise it though

Bandleading forum.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

itd be more beneficial if your third guitarist could also play keyboards (INXS anyone?)

i agree with phantom and xcam... the third one has to cover for another instrument, using some counterpoint; otherwise it just duplicate one other, with a lot of risks: synchro, tone, and most important... whose the best? the other will be unuseful in a couple of days...

but, is not that impossible stuff. here we have a band called matusa (from mathusalem, we are 40+, and from mat-USA because we like "classical american" from creedence clearwater on) and we have 3 guitars, 1 bass, keyboard, drum, lead vocal, two chicks in chorus, trumpets...

but we are an ensemble, we have room for everybody.

the lead guitar is followed by two rythm guitars, but they play usually chords (one) and arpeggios (the other).

so... settle down, think a lot, think of everything you got...

judging by your set list there i would say cover some Hawthorne Heights and some Cartel because both of those bands use 3 guitars regularly. ive thought about this as well for my band but one of the guitarists has to either do vocals or play another instrument or else the sound gets kinda muddied. if you can manage to pull it off pm when you get a recording up because id love to hear it.

good luck!!!

Yes of course, just as Iron Maiden can sell millions of records and be widely regarded as one of the best metal bands ever, so can you.


I would just stick with 2, especcially with the music you guys are playing.
