    Slightly spoiled myself on DMC5 SE but they use that variation of Bury the Light from the launch trailer in the final battle.

    That would be hilarious. All I know is, the guy who wrote that song has made a fuckload of money off that dumb shit 😂

    I wonder if Miley will cover Achey Breaky Heart.

    "Need" is a funny word when it comes to music. Things that I "need" musically others don't and vice versa, it's why I listen to some things and not so much others.
     
    It's not so much "filling in" the mix as it is not taking away from what's already come before. If you're coming from a chorus, imo,  a guitar solo in a up/mid tempo rock song should be even bigger or at least on par with the chorus itself, unless it's supposed to be moody or whatnot. But that's why most bands track enough rhythm guitars in those sections in the studio unless they're going for more of a live vibe and only have one or two guitarists. They track those things when they have the resources to do so even though they may not have enough band members to cover those live, but in Miley's case, she does.
     
    And yeah, my band was headlining at most of those clubs. We were usually the only bands playing at those places (we had residencies and these clubs were a step up from the average club you hear bands in) so we didn't have any backlining to do except one time we opened for a bigger artist and had to fit our gear around his stage setup. But Miley is playing at a level where she has roadies to take care of the gear and they're probalby playing bigger venues anyway so there's more space for her to do her thing.
     
    As for the last bit, bands like this usually only have shorter solo sections. These aren't jam bands we're talking about, they're bands like GnR, Motley Crue, etc. The guitars are arguably the most important part of a rock mix and with a good sound engineer (which someone of Miley's status would have) will make everything sound like it should so everything gets heard.
     
    Trios are some of my favorite bands, Nirvana, The Police, the Bill Evans Trio, etc. There's something about a good trio that I've always loved and having played in a few myself, it's a lot of fun if you have the right musicians with you. 
     
    Having said that, it depends on the music and how it's written. And Tool is a totally different kind of band so what works for them and their songs may not necessarily work for Miley Cyrus.

    Sometimes the extra instruments can add a lot though.  For example, listen to Siamese Dream.  Corgan overdubbed a fuck ton of guitar tracks to give it that compressed sound.  He and Butch Vig submixed something like 12 guitar tracks down to stereo on analog tape.  The result is a guitar sound that at that time no other album, at least not that I've heard, has come close to.  But this is all on the production side of things.  I've seen the Pumpkins a few times live and they were much more raw and sounded way less produced as a 4 piece, which I could appreciate.

    It is by far the most boring arrangements of those songs I have ever heard.  I won't go see them.  Mayer can't get out of the fucking pentatonic and it ruins all of those mixolydian jams Jerry used to lay down. Bobby sounds like he needs to be taken out behind the shed and put out of his misery.  This whole Dead & Co garbage is a fucking cash grab.  Tickets are at a minimum $80 for nose bleeds and I don't feel like paying that much money to take a nap.
     
    If you want to see where the natural evolution of that music is, check out Joe Ruso's Almost Dead.

    Thats sort of why its a fruitless conversation. White Stripes did their whole career on two people playing. Rush had one guitar who sounds like three.
     
    Post some songs where extra instruments are going to waste

    Full orchestras have 30+ people and y'l are really arguing what the right amount of people for a band is.

    I mean, the Grateful Dead are one of my favorite bands of ALL TIME, and they had a full stage, including two drummers (except from '71 to '74 when Micky left and it was just Billy holding it down.  Ironically, '73 and '74 are my favorite years as far as their exploration in improv  jamming went. But I also really like '77 and '78 when Micky came back.  Basically, all of the 70's were amazing, but were definitely separated by eras.  Once Pigpen died  in '73, Jerry took over as the de facto leader and things started to get a little bit more guitar-centric with him taking on more of a leading role then he was with Pigpen on keys.  But Keith really changed the sound, too when he took over the keys- their jams started to really solidify. Don't get me wrong- the '60s and early 70's stuff is fucking epic too.  Some of my favorite stuff is from that era, and Pigpen was much more than a piano player and vocalist- he was basically a hype man, too. But the change was noticeable when he died and was replaced, and the sound evolved and, in my opinion, peaked in the mid 70s.  But that's more because Jerry peaked at that time. The one thing that I cant stand about the time Keith was with the band is that they let his fucking wife sing.  She would just stand on stage for most of the song, and then during a jam sometimes she would wail like a fucking banshee and it sounded AWFUL.), but I think that comes down to musicianship rather than how many people are on stage.

    It makes sense, especially from a live perspective, and rock is more a live performance medium. Besides, Miley probably won't be playing guitar live so having the extra player is a bonus.
     
    More bodies onstage=more hype show for a lot of people, especially if it's a big stage. I used to play clubs that wouldn't book anything less than a 4 piece but preferred 5 or more because the stages were big, it meant more musicians to interact with the audience, and the sound was thicker and more "pro." 
     
    If you have two rhythm guitarists, it means that when the lead guitarist takes a solo, you don't have the drop in energy that usually accompanies them stopping playing chords if you don't have a piano/keys player to help pad out the mix. You get three guitarists playing different sounding guitars and staying in their lanes and it can work and sound great. A lot of 3 and 4 piece bands will sometimes hire a utility guy or play with backing tapes playing in the mix so it's like having another musician there from a mix/sound perspective, but playing with backing tapes especially if you're a rock band sucks ass. Having another body onstage rocking out looks and sounds way better.

    haha, every time I've seen Maximillian since..or just when someone mentions his name, I remember his infamous "CHINDER CHAGGER!" moment and I'm laughing again.  That shit was hysterical, man 🤣  ...and he said it twice!  Actually I should've saved the clip... I should do that if it's still out there...

    They're doing so much great stuff with this game I might buy that IGA's Backpack DLC again on Switch to throw them a little support. They said they might do some other paid DLC down the road like costumes or even additional playable characters but that that's a ways out. So it'll be interesting to see how long they support this game for.

    Hi, everyone. The Bloodless/Randomizer update should drop in about an hour on Steam, GOG, PS4 and Xbox One. Once you have update 1.18 (1.0.1.8 on Xbox) create a new save named BLOODLESS to access the bonus content.

    She did a whole set of acoustic country covers. A lot of them are really good.
