Alex and Chris,

Do you guys have an acoustic bass? I think I might have to get one. Are they just like electric, only acoustic? You see, the band wants to play Blister In the Sun and my guitarist says it's got to be an acoustic bass. Blister the Sun seems like a pretty tough tune. What you're thoughts on acoustic bass, like the one in Blister In the Sun? Maybe there is a pedal for the bass that creates the sound of acoustic bass, no?

Acoustic bass is functionally the same as an electric bass. BUT you still need a small amp if you're gonna have a jam with a few acoustic guitars. The low frequency means the volume is relatively low.

Does your singer sound exactly like the singer in 'Blister'? I'd guess no.

So why should the bass?

Your guitarist is quite the pedant - get him to buy the acoustic bass.
