I have a great pro bassist that will play all the gigs I can get. But I'm tired of the acoustic, bass, and me on solo vocals sound. Unfortunately, he can't sing well at all. If I had a drum machine I think we could really expand our sound by me playing electric and playing more/better sounding solos. Solos are just very limited on acoustic unless it's bluegrass which I also play, but in other ensembles. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about playing drums to feel comfortable programming in a cover song with the right timing for fills, chorus changes, etc. Are they're any good drum machines that can just "listen" to a song we want to cover and program itself? I realize this may be a stupid question. Also, could you start/stop it with a pedal?
