For the first time I find myself in the role of lead guitar player in a bad full of excellent players. Crap! How long will it take them to figure out that I don't know what I am doing. How does one learn to become a really competent lead player? Rock n Roll and country stuff mainly. I have played music all my life. I know the basics. I can play a passable solo, especially if I have an opportunity to work something out ahead of time, but how do go to the next level (before they discover that I suck?)! My rig, if it matters, is tele, Egantor Tweaker, HOF reverb pedal, and a RC Booster (although I don't usually use that pedal).
