Maybe you guys can help me settle an "friendly" argument between my husband and I. What is better for accompaniment of singing (like praise & worship) if you can have only one instrument - either a standard guitar or a bass? My guess is that basses would be more difficult. I think an experienced bass player will be able to do a good job, but that a standard guitar will be easier to use under these circumstances. My husband thinks it doesn't matter, both will be equally appropriate. The two us however, do not play bass, so we can't really say and I've heard many guitars used for leading singing, but never a bass by itself. I have also seen people get by on a standard guitar only knowing the D, A, G and Em chords. And while you're at helping me, what do you call guitars that is not bass without possible confusion between then - like saying e...well... guitar. This standard guitar thing doesn't do it for me. PS. I would like to hear from as many people as possible, but bass players will be especially appreciated, since I am considering changing to bass, but do a lot of worship leading.
