Lead/Rhythm - I do the vocals as well, it depends on how I write the song.

It depends on what Im playing. But Im pretty much into both. When Im in jazz band it has to be rhythm(Because Im in the rhythm section:P) But when Im jamming with friends I try to worthlessly shred.

i think most of us play both, but i've been focusing a lot on rhythm lately. once you get into jazz and stuff you realize its a lot more than what you might think. for example, there are two "h"s.

I can play either, and I mix both when I play in my room. When I play live, I much prefer lead, because I'm usually the most skilled and/or only guitarist around. Not to mention that I enjoy showing off some soloing skills for a crowd.

I'm finding in recent weeks that I'm gradually favoring rhythm. I guess I started to like it more after seeing Rich Robinson of the Black Crowes kick ass when I saw them in November and realizing what a great rhythm guitarist he was.

Rhythm all the way. It's much more important than leads. It kind of blows when a song has a shit rhythm but an awesome lead. That's why Necrophagist kicks ass.

I play in a balls-out guitar band, so we alternate in the middle of songs.

Soloing is cool, but man, when you lay down those skull-crushing, backbone-breaking, non-profit-organization-decimating riffs, that's where it's at.

Rhythm for sho!

Personally, all the lead stuff just goes in one ear and out the other. I just can't comprehend scales and modes. If I come up with a riff, and it sounds nice...then fuck musical rules. As long as it sounds good to the band.

Of course, that's why there's two guitarists
#35
It all depends on how me and the other guitarist in our band are feeling. If someone wants to rip a solo, fine, the other one can take over the Rhythm, or maybe we both just want to play it straight, so be it. I usually only take lead if I feel a really good solo coming on, which isn't all that often, but it's good enough, I like my solos to mean something.

Damn, now I'll have to try to get some Dual-Lead stuff going on, sounds fun.
#36
I think if I was in a band, I'd probably play rhythm, but I enjoy doing both. I especially like songs that are for one guitar but switch back and forth, or a really rhythmic and funky lead part, instead of just running up scales.

+1.

I think it was Jimmy Page who did the same, didn't have any mates, so learned how to play lead and rhythm at the same time.
