I can play rhythm, with or without singing. Plus I can play lead fairly well. So I guess I'm "the whole package" as you say...

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

Are you sure you're not the n00b here?

You can sing and play any song you put your mind to man. It might just take different levels of practice to get to that point.

In my band I am the "Rhythm Guitarist", but I guess thats just because the other guitarist is amazing and can solo realy good. Lately I have been playing lead in covers when we practice and even some of the originals. I sortof just go for the solo and its fun. I used to never solo and the other guitarist would be like... "Come on! Solo" and im like "No, I suck at that". But now I just take the solo! haha fun.

The title lead is actually something alot of people misinterpret that title, lead plays the same thing as rythmn does until you do your solo. Alot of people misinterpret Lead as being the guy whole plays a billion lightning fast notes through a song. Lead needs to also know the progession that rythmn plays so that he can name the key- just some theory- to base his solo on. Even Yngwie malmsteen's songs that do have lyrics, he plays rythmn parts until his solo. If you don't know theory, you can't be lead, you can't do the exact thing Rythmn does you cant be lead.

I can play both, but I shine with rhythm. Technically, I'm the whole package.

I play both parts since I'm the only guitar player in my band (we're a trio - I also sing).
