Help to choose between bass and extended range guitare
i'll ask some favor because i just can't make my choice.
I've played the bass when i was a teenage in several numetal/hxc bands than i turn to electronic music.
But now i listening a lot of metal like i used to so i want to put some metal in my music.
I want to keep it focused in the low frequency and with hard synthetic rythm in your face
My problem is a just can't choose between extended range guitar (8 strings) or bass guitar as the main instrument
with guitar i could probably make more complex melodical stuff and dissonant chord i like (dimished 2nd) but will probably need to had a synthetic bass beneath to have my focus on low frequency : do you think a 8 strings could work without bass ?
With bass it'll be allready in the good frequency range and i think i could play tracks faster. i've allready play the bass so i think i could learn back quickly. but my problem is do you think a bass with some effect could fill up the spectrum completetly ?
i just don't know it's really hard to make a choice ...
feel free to comment !
I feel for what you have decided you want, bass is more appropriate. Extended range bass. That in my opinion can fill up the spectrum very well, whereas I don't think extended range guitar does apart from jazzy clean chord/solo stuff with no other instruments.
i think a 6 strings bass would be appropriate for my project. i've a 5 strings bass but a cheaper not really good
what would you choose between ibanez SR506 or LTD 416 ?
i will test them in a shop but not every shop has them ... so if you could could give me advice : how each sound and play ?
