Prompted by the isms that make you cringe thread. Apart from the perceived "difference" between "lead" and "rhythm" guitar parts ... there are roles in other musical ensemble eg "lead trumpet" probably similar to "section principals" in an orchestra, in which the person having the job is held to be more experienced/capable and can be relied upon as the one to "follow" if you're in the rank&file and not sure of what you're supposed to be doing. So is this automatically true of a "lead guitarist"? I don't think so. I've been the one who is called the "lead guitarist" but that's only because it was my job to play the solos and the fills around the comping-style of chord work that someone else did. I wasn't a leader, in fact the band's leader was in one case the "rhythm" guitarist, in another case the keyboard player, in yet another case one of the singers.
