Rhythm for me

Ever tried singing/playing lead at the same time?

It takes a special kind of talented asshole to do that shit
It's over simplified, So what!

Both. If it's Dream Theater or some shit like that, I'll play rhythm during some of the lead parts.
#9
I record rhythm, play it back and play lead over it. So, both.

Loop the lead riff and make a cool rhythm, the loop the cool rhythm and make a cooler lead or solo, it what I do
#13
actually if you purely play lead for hours at end, you can end up shredding like brendon small or glenn proudfoot
#15
I usually play chords, then layer chords, then layer chords, then throw a solo over it and jam for days, with the help of technology.
#16
Sometimes ill just play a song through my speakers and jam along with it playing lead. But other times ill record some chords and play lead over it. so idk
#17
i diddle about with chords, then tab it out on guitar pro and play lead stuff over it. if i like what i have i keep it.

than i pawn that shit off to the second guitarist in the band because i dont like playing lead work
#18
Lead, rhythm is for piss puddles.

When people say 'I'm a rhythm guitarist' it normally means 'I can't play lead'.

Rhythm guitar isn't just chords, it can be arpeggiated chords, inversions, 3rds, 5ths, 8ths etc. You learn all of that when you learn lead, due to the fact it's basic theory and because you'll come across it all in solos.

Any guitarist worth anything knows how to play some lead and some rhythm. Someone who just plays chords doesn't know much at all, unfortunately. All of the great rhythm guitarists had a firm knowledge of lead which is obviously incorporated into their rhythm stuff.

The ideal kind of rock style would be a combined effort, Hendrixy/Frooshy.

I play the songs I'll be playing the next weekend... So I play the rhythm parts until the lead parts unless the singer wants to take the lead parts and I play the rhythm parts
