  • Gaps between songs, how do you fill the space

    Hi all, thought you guys might be in a good place to offer advice to this situation.



    I play in an instrumental band with three guitarists (check my sig ), and since we use altered tunings and LOTS of effects, there can be dead time between songs. Now, we have tried to fill it with "banter", plugs for other shows we are playing, downloads etc... but it's always not quite enough. Any advice? We have toyed with the idea of storing some music/noises onto a looper pedal and playing that in between, how do people think that would go down?

      I would simplify what you do. Maybe audiences like waiting around and being able to talk for a bit. I just start the next song on my own and keep going until the band start up.

        my bandmate loops stuff, mostly from the end of the prior song. And if we have different tunings for songs, we bring more guitars.

          Bring a guitar for each tuning, or don't play those songs.

                  I usually structure my band's set so that there are minimal stops between songs. We have a few tunes that start with drums which helps a lot. In the situation you are describing I would probably try to have some intros so that one guitarist could be doing an intro thing while another is switching out instruments.

                    This.





                    In all honesty, looping noise/snippets etc. in between songs is a great idea.

                    I thought it was going to be different;It turned out to be(,) just the same.

                        I hate when bands talk or "plug" **************** between songs. Very few people can pull of banter.
