Correct number of guitars in band?

Postby Max » Sat Sep 19, 2020 1:11 am

OK, so I understand the rhythm (aka guy who knows how to play and is in sync with the band) + lead (guy who does the fancy stuff) dynamic.


and I can understand the judas priest/iron maiden dueling leads thing....


but why does a pedestrian Canadian 70s guess who type band need three guitars?

Jerry Mercer from April Wine does strike me as a particularly good drummer... he's in his 80s now.

Yeah the Ministry song was cool, can't have too many drummers I say. Ever see the Skeptics play with their 2 drummers?
