so after about two years my band has found a stable guitarist and we're doing well, more or less. we've been debating getting a Rhythm guitarist. i'm the bassist and i don't really think we need one. my band mates can't give me too much of a reason to get one. we're not writing stuff that needs 2 guitars and nothing that i couldn't handle with my bass plus if i'm competing between 2 guitars i'm gona need a 400 watt PA just to hear myself and i can't afford that. we play more or less a blend of deathcore and melotic death metal. and my band mates keep bringing it up. is there any GOOD reason we could use a rhythm? thanks.

to... keep rhythm?

during solos it's awfully catchy to have a main riff playing in the backround, or you can go with two leads that share rhythm and solo parts.

theres a lot of POSITIVE things to come from a rhythm guitar and not many negatives if you want MY opinion.

or to have the lead play some thing alittle difffert and change the sound
listen to some songs and try to see what each guitar does in the song

I think a second guitar player is a great asset to have. If you really want to thicken up your sound and do some cool riffage, 2 guitar players is a must.

Plus, he doesn't have to just play the guitar. You can find one who can play the keyboards and sing to really expand the sounds in a band situation.

i would like to have one. but we went through hell to try to get ONE guitarist. and i like the idea of having some one who can beef up our sound and play keys and stuff... i think we'll just keep an eye out for one. thanks for the help.

It shouldn't be that hard to find a guitar player, we come a dime a dozen.

Yeah, but it's rare to find a diamond in the rough with guitarists. Finding a guy who can keep a rhythm should be no problem though; problem is, most rhythm players just seriously want to be lead and you're gonna hear a lot of bitching unless you can find someone who seriously wants to be a rhythm and doesn't want the front.

bigger sound.

i play mostly rhythm, some lead. when we write songs me and the other guitarist, and the whole band for that matter, just work out how we want a song to sound, regardless of who plays what. its nice sometimes not having to try to carry the whole guitar section with one instrument. it lets us both do obscure stuff that sounds good with the rest of the band behind us. also it really opens our style and lets us be real creative since i play lead one way, and he plays another. same with rhythm, me one way, him other.
