Thought I would share this short but kind of funny video from these two clowns.
Never really cared for the "head banger" vibe.
Except for some silly youngster days, I've always had the utmost respect for good rhythm playing. At this point my brain often reacts to a whole lot of lead playing as offensive.
I almost sold my Teles a while back when someone told me they weren't lead guitars.
I want to hear them sing a song.
Whenever I tell someone I play guitar they usually respond with one of these two:
"Oh? Lead or rhythm?"
"Oh? Lead or bass?"
Last time I played lead, someone in the crowd shouted: 'Can you play in another key?'
I said: 'Sure, which one?'
He said: 'Newquay or Torquay...'*

Is it still 'rhythm" if the guy never plays a chord?
Yeah, I didn't hear one single blues lick in there at all.
I just answer yes to the first question. The second question, I don't answer...
not my genre but fun stuff.
Nah, people seriously don't use these terms anymore, do they? They were old hat and had contrived functions in all of the songs. Whether I've been in a band with just one (moi) or two guitarists, you are either playing background or a solo. Background doesn't have to be just chords, but it does have a foundational role. The roles of background and solo, plus everything in between, can easily be shifted between two players based on the needs of the song. Keith Richards' concept of weaving would be right in the middle ground between background and solo. Better quit, preaching to the choir here.
But, honestly, has anyone ever really said that to you?
I was going to work one day and had one of my strats in a gig bag. an old man on the street saw the bag and asked, "What kind of guitar do you play?" I was at a loss because I didn't know what he meant: bass or 6 string? or what brand of guitar or what type of music? or lead or rhythm?
I finally said "Blues" and left for work. elderly people should be made to stay inside and not allowed to pester musicians.
Eddie Van Halen is one of the best rhythm guitar players ever.
Prove me wrong.
true. so was jimi Hendrix.
What, no riffs?
Can't have lead without a riff right?
