My Guitarists and I kinda get into little scuffles about where to put my bass amp. I think it should go right next to the drums. what do yall think?

w/o bass n drums, there wouldn't really be rock music.

Schecter is pronounced 'Shek-ter', right? I don't want to walk in and say, "Hey, can I try out that Sketcher?" and have the helper reply with "Wtf, we don't sell shoes!"

it doesn't really matter that much. regardless of what we do we will always be the least involved in everything.

I guess it depends on what other instruments you need to hear to play your parts.
ESP Custom Shop 40th Anniversary Eclipse
ESP Standard Eclipse-II
Ibanez AF85VLS

The logical solution is the side of the drums the guitar player is not on. If you have two guitar players, have them share a side, or have each of them take a side and you go all Steve Harris. Meaning you stand in front and have minor scuffles with your vocalist.

Everything, all the instruments, need to be as clear as possible, thats the most important thing to adhere to.

too good for your own good?
lol

well the honest answer for that should be (if two guitars) between the two guitar amps and if one guitar,on the opposite side.

but honestly,it should be where it sounds best.

I always take stage left. No idea why.


Same here, now that I think about it. hmmm...

I always go on the left side too..

I don't gig, but I feel like if I did that would be most comfortable for me, how wierd.
Left side as in the bands perspective I assume.
#17
ive never gigged before but i know i would go on the left. The only reason i can think why is because if you were on the right the cable would behind your legs and you would fall over(?)

I'm usually on the left with the rythm guitarist on the left of me. The drummer to the right. The lead guitarist slightly to the right next the singer so they can share a mic.

check out all they videos on youtube
they dead serious about thuggin like that
if you ask me they are fruity
an i hope one morning they drown in there fruit loops

I'm usually on the right, because that is the only space on my school stage for the amp.

However, if you are on the left, I suppose you are less likely to clobber someone with your neck.

If it's right next to the drums, it'll do that annoying thing where the bass shakes the snare.

Thats the most funniest and biggest crap i heard this month. This has more to do with you or your band then bassist in general.

I won't even begin to name bands and songs where the bass is most involved.

Yeah, right. That John Entwistle sure was dispised.

Anyway, every show I've ever played had a backline which I've used, and they've always been set up stage left.

We practice in my basement, and I'm actually in the middle. The drummer and I face eachother, and the guitar player is somewhat perpendicular across the room with my vocal monitor between he and I. So, basically, the only thing the drummer can hear is my bass playing, and the guitar player is the only one who can hear my singing, including me.

Not intended, but there you go.

The one proper gig I've played I was on the right side, I have no idea why though, just think I prefer it.

My drummer sings so sometimes I just stand in front, which is kind of wierd compared to other bands.

Heh, I've just realised that I play to the left of the drummer. I always thought in my mind I would play on the right but i guess i usually like playing to the left unless the bass amp is in a different place.

Too cool for a signature.

I stick it right in front of me. then I can really hear my mistakes, just in case they sound good.

i set-up on my drummers left side. from there, i can see his kick drum pedal. i use that as a visual reference for my timing. for a live setting, without PA support for the instruments, i put my amp as close to the drums as possible, so the drummer can hear me better. we put the lead guitar on the right. if there is a rhythm he goes on my left. if it a small practice situation, we just basically face each other. there really is no right, or wrong way to set-up. you guys just have to find what way sounds best for you.
