i always think its just a riff played over the ryhthm riff... right? not just a solo? but riffs in the song? is it? can someone correct me?
A lead is the prominent part in a passage that's highlighted in the mix. It does not necessarily have to be a solo per say.
The main guitar part of the song. Main riff, solo, solo fill, whatever.
Don't flame buddy.
ive actually been playing for 3 years thank you. i just never quite understood what a lead was, but turns out it was exactly what i thought it was.
