    a rhythm guitarist provides rhythm to the song

    a lead guitarist fills in riffs, solos and melody

    if he doesnt know what lead means, i doubt if he'd be knowing what are riffs and solos :)

    let me try..lead is like playing one note at time, in which u pluck one string at a time but rhythm is like strumming all given notes or given strings at one go

    how about uploading an audio clip..let me see

    You dont knwo waht a lead guitarist does but you still want to become a lead guitarist??

    Well the lead guitarist is usually the more talented of the two guitarist and has the ability to improve( create a solo) over whatever the rhythm guitarist playes.

    Also the lead guitarist must have long hair and must fall to the ground making orgasmic faces while playing a solo, else he will be castrated.

    I don't agree with that .. They're completely different people .. n its incorrect to compare them .. n say one is more talented than the other .. So is it that the Bass guitarist are the least talented ?

    First of all, waht I said was with a hint of sarcasm(something which is need to work on )
    Anyways, for the sake of argument,a lead guitarist can play rhythm but a rhythm guitarist cant play lead. And leave the poor bassist out of this discussion.

    Oh, btw , my comparison was solely on the parameter of playing skill(technicality), not creativity,originality or *** appeal.
