Rhythm.

I kind of suck at soloing, but hey, every day you try to get a little bit better.

both. i dont know why guitarists have to be so homosexual and split the two...you dont get a 'rhythm' pianist!

also i dont know why most guitarists dont try harder and do advanced solos like megadeth etc.

That's a rather subjective question, however I would say probably I'm better at solo work than rhythm. Of course, being the only guitar player in my band, I have to play a lot of rhythm, so I'm getting better at it.

I am a rhythmachine.
I will stand by all this drinking if it helps me through these days,
It takes a long time just to get this all straight.
#14
I am the only guitarist in my band. i therefore man the helms of both rhythm and leads. I take great pride in both

Why are half of your threads music-related polls?

im better at rhythm. seeing as my guitar sounds are fairly limited it sounds a lot better at rhythm as it cant stand out against much.
#20

I’d say rhythm. I love playing blues and improvising solos.
But when you lock into a good groove, there’s no topping that.
#22
I'm good at rhythm and decent at improv/soloing.

I'm surprised that the mods haven't closed half of them, because quite a few of them technically belong in other forums.

I mostly stick to rhythms, but instead of having someone play rhythm guitar & someone play lead guitar, I prefer it when they both play "guitars", as in switching leads, etc.
#29
I make up a cool riff once in a while but I can't write solos for ****. Noit very good at soloing anyway. I voted rhythm.

I thought I might get away with posting this in the pit since it applies to any instrument

I play both. I usually play one solo per song, and the other guitarist in my band plays another.

Rhythm, but I can throw in some pretty sick flatpicking licks once I get momentum from the strumming. It's weird how I can't just start picking fast right away, but once I get going I have no problem keeping it up.
#36
