Something I've noticed with bands, both pro touring and local, is that of all the classic band instruments (guitar, bass, drums, keys) it is always the guitarist that is hard to hear. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like guitar doesn't cut through that well unless they play loudly. With drums, bass and keys they seem to all have their own sonic place without having to crank the volume. Drums you can hear and feel fine, bass you can feel, keys just seem to magically float and be heard perfectly, but guitar struggle. Maybe it's just me, but I've noticed this with a bunch of bands.
