In musical terms “accompaniment” refers to a musical part that supports or partners with a solo instrument, voice or group.
I’ve sung lots of solos and 99% of the time I have preferred to have some kind of accompaniment.
An accompanist is one who comes along side of you and supports you in your activity.
I love it when I get to accompany Carolyn at one of her business events, and she likewise enjoys hanging out with me at my stuff.
I guess we could say an accompanist has your back. They support you, they back you up.
Certain foods sometimes need an accompaniment too. A hamburger is just not a hamburger without the bun. Neither is guacamole without some chips in most cases.
I like accompaniment.
