Mm-hm. But why sacrifice the high notes, and why have access to the lower notes?

With the band I'm in, being able to play the D before E allows me to fill a space left barren by the guitars. Both tend to use biting setups, seemly leaving a big empty space. Plus I love to start my runs a octave lower than expected. Very Happy There a few songs I need the G for. But not as many as I would have guessed.
