What type of guitarist are you? If not a particular type, what kind do you do best? Not genre, just the way you play.

I've been a lead guitarist since I started learning guitar, but I am most certainly able to fill the boots of a rhythm guitars. I play Lead for a rock band too, but we kinda' suck, so I asked my Music Teacher if he is able to get me a different band at school :p

i prefer to play rhythm as i have pretty much no musical theory, but in my band i'm forming me and the other guitarist play both rhythm and lead, depending on who thinks of something/ can play it better

I play alot of rythm/bass but alot of times I also play what I geuss you could call a textural type of sound I like to add alot of ambient guitar effects to songs. I also work with alot of feedback and noise and such.

so I checkd other.

A bit like Zakk Wylde. He's got good rhythm and lead chops


I completely agree, Zakk Wylde is a truly unique guitarist.

If i was in a band I'd be lead, but I'm more of a lone guitarist in the sense of I do all my stuff on my own Satriani/Vai style with no singing but all the parts are done by me.
#22
you cant be lead once u start, thats just giving yourself a meaningless title,
you try lead, you try rhythm, and eventually once your a good rhythm guitarist you might take on lead,

but when your in a begginer band and you go ime lead cuz ive been playing 2 more days than you thats just horse balls. How many of you here can actually write a minimum 30 sec decent solo?

but ime a metal guitarist, love heavy riffs and sweet licks

blues rock , jazzy blues, country blues, jam modal funk styles and rock. not much for metal but i have found some of it apealing. i like hendrix ,srv, phish, the dead, johhny winter, robin trower and the rolling stones with mick tayler on lead guitar.

i know but tbh he isn't great and me and the bassist want to be able to jam more in songs with out having to worry about what the other guitarist is doing

I play a good mix of lead and rhythm, and I sing, but what I really like is writing. I don't worry at all about the technical side of things, I just try to out good tunes. I identify more with Lou Reed than any of the so called "guitar gods" in that regard.
Listen to mah discs.

Bass and drum are no instruments. They are waste of time and to give the jerks something to entertain themself with onstage.

Rhythm definately. I can play most leads, but I can't write one to save my life. However I can whip up a chord progression that I'm satifisfied with in five minutes.
