im in two bands. im in both of them with my best friend. one is a worship band and another is a rockband. My friend is Lead guitar in both of them. The drummer doesnt like me much but since he got us all together to play he picked roles. i hate playing rythm cause i think im better than my friend the drummer only thinks hes better cause they listen to the same music. Im sick of being underrated and just being pushed around. im better than my friend i should play lead cause the drummer knows im better but doesnt like me. im not leaving the band. what should i do?

why don't you bring forward some stuff you want to play and be like I'll play lead on this or ask if you can switch on a certain song to play lead.
American Fender Strat

Taylor 314CE

I don't know.. double lead? Dualing guitar solos is pretty cool if you ask me.


Like Iron Maiden >_>

think of a song that you can play and that your best friend can't.

when he says he can't play, just say " well, I can". then show your superiority.

or just rawr very loudly in his face.

looks like someone wants to get sigged.

also, who cares if youre playing rhythm? if it really hurts you that bad, ask your friend to take the solo in the song without telling the drummer. if the drummer has a bitch fit, screw him. tell him it was one solo and its not like its going to tear apart the band

typical noobs to the forum. you all think the pit is your doctor

EDIT: just read one of your above posts:

if the guitarist is really your "best friend", he WILL let you solo

pick your balls up off the floor and put them back into your nutsack

i can't believe people actually join bands in which there's a bossy, controlling lunatic. Get everyone together, and either fire the drummer or quit. Problem solved.

just because he got you all together doesn't mean he owns everything.

As long as you're friends with everyone else in the band you don't have to go to him for shit. Its a band, not (insert drummers name) plus 3. unless thats the name of your band... i hope not

But if Dave hadn't left Metallica, we wouldn't have the masterpiece that is Rust in Peace.

your drummer runs your band? ...holy shit, unless your drummer is Steven Tyler, you're fucked


If you really are better than the other guitarist, prove it. Make it undeniable to everybody else in the band. Even if the drummer already knows you're better, you have to make it so obvious he can't pretend any different. If you can't do that, then you aren't better than him and should be satisfied as the rhythm player.


My mind is going. I can feel it.
