Ok, so my band is a dual lead band:

I'm the 1st lead, and I'm a really bluesy guitarist, like blues/rock like zeppelin. The other guitarist is really thrashy like metallica sorta. I've heard him play and he's heard me play, and we both think each other are good, and the singer and bassist have each heard us both play, and think we're both good, but us two lead guitarists have never jammed together for some reason.


Do you guys think the dual thrash/blues will sound good?


EDIT: Also, I forgot to mention that we won't be playin the same exact thing or the same thing to an interval either, we'll each be playin diff. things

Plus, the bass line is gonna be more on the bluesy side too, but not base notes an actual bass line lol cuz i hate it when it does base notes it just sounds plain, but unless the song is more thrashy it mite go with the other guitarist.

Good musicians who share chemistry are FAR AND AWAY more important than choosing some bullshit genre to label yourselves as.

Putting yourself in a genre is the VERY DEFINITION of labeling yourself. All I'm saying is that you should play with these guys. If it sounds good, then it sounds good. If it doesn't, then it doesn't. It doesn't get much simpler than that.

Isn't thrash metal already raping blues scales + pentatonics? Take a look at Dave Mustaine, Kirk Hammett and I think the dude from Testament does it a bit too.

I dunno, thrash got its stuff from blues rock bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zepplin.


Anyway, it should be good as long as you both dont try to steal the show... and avoid the always possible volume war. Happy playing

Kind of makes me think of the Crossroads Guitar Duel.

I think having different styles will help you sound more unique.

I think it'd work.
Actually, the band we were getting together last year had kind of the same thing going on. I think it would have worked well, but the whole thing kinda fell apart. I still keep in contact with that guitarist, because after we were already jamming and had stuff going, I found out he's a cousin of mine and I just hadn't known that side of my family.

We're still trying to get something going, so we jam pretty often. Give it a shot, if it works then good. If it dosn't, then just find other people to jam with.
