I actually am voting drummer, because our drummer is the shit, and he's the living embodiment of Looney Tunes
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

BASSIST! he is the coolest member, i mean look at pete wentz (laughs at own bad joke)
#15
generally, most people don't play musical instruments and to them the only person they can truly understand is the vocalist, thus making him the coolest.

but obviously for us guitarists the lead guitarist is cooler.

i still voted vocalist though

I don't think that guitarists should just focus on just rhythm or just lead.

A good guitarist should be able to do both. Lead guitarist with rhythm sucks, and a rhythm guitarist unable to put some lead stuff and manipulate his rhythm sucks.

Depends on the band.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Dude, have you seen this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_XteEQZlq0&feature=related

I just found it, and it's possibly the funniest thing I've ever seen related to guitar. Even better than Paul Gilbert's pulling a bunny out from behind his guitar trick (and/or sweeping with his ass).


That is a wierd vid.
