Quizzy & Rant-ish About "Rhythm Guitarist" vs. Solos

Your result for Test Your Ideal Role in a Rock Band...

Rhythm Guitarist

Damn, so close! You get to play the guitar, but not the solos! What a crappy fate, you think. Really? Crappy? So you're saying that your average AC/DC fan has wet dreams about all those 4-minute guitar solos, but they never really feel like hearing the intro to Back in Black? Nooooo, rock is as much about riffs as about solos! And riffs are good for jumping around to! The worst guitar nerds will walk away from the gig replaying good solos in their heads, but it's your massive stage presence and rock hard riffs that will make any normal fan come back again and again. Because they admire the lead guitarist and like the singer, but it's you that they love!

I suppose that's right. Though I don't play rock. But if I were to, there would be no solos. I tend to usually really hate solos. Maybe if they are extremely short or are used very slowly in styles of minimalism to allow for space. I can't justify solos. Listening to them, I generally hear either what seems like a lot of pointless running around at best, or at worst disgusting wanking.
