Usually when I see a band who has only 1 guitarist, they have certain parts pre recorded, or maybe they're covering a song that has a part created by a dj and they play that part that they sampled from the song. How does this work? Is there a computer program that can take samples from music or a way to play a part, record it on my computer and play it back as a fill during a show? I know nothing about how they do this.

It can be done a bunch of different ways. some people use pedals. Others hire another guitarist to stay backstage and play. And some people pre record it and play it through the PA system.

can you give me an example of a pedal that does this? Maybe one that can store a bunch of different pre recorded patches?

Digitech JamMan, Boss RC-2, Boss RC-20XL, Line 6 DL4, and the Akai Headrush E2 do looping, with the last two having the added benefit of delay.

What you're looking for isn't a loop pedal. These bands use software such as Ableton Live and Reason. Certain tracks that can't be performed live, most commonly when a song features more instruments than musicians, are recorded.

Usually then the drummer will have headphones with a metronome to keep the band on beat, and they will actually play along with the recording, rather than trying to make the recording fit to them.

That or samples can be triggered via midi systems hooked into similar programs as above.

Touring guitarist.The only touring guitarist I can think of is Pat Smear,the touring old guitarist for Nirvana.Usually,they just play the rhythm part whilst the star does the solo.

Ozzy had a keyboardist that he kept hidden backstage because keyboardists "just weren't metal."
