Default Re: Bass Player-less band?

I played for almost two years with a singer/songwriter who ran his guitar through a keys amp that had a ton of low-end. We too tried several bassists and it just didn't work. No one ever commented that we needed more low-end or a bassist, when checking out the recordings. He played down-tuned and knew how to fill in the stuff missing from the lower register. It was a lot of fun since there was no creative tension...we both loved the same music and I really dug what he wrote...so we went with it as a duo and it worked well.

I'd like to do something like this again!
