and of course you're right.... I never played lead guitar, or guitar at all. What I mean is... the melody. As you know I played trumpet thru college... I wanted to continue playing music my entire life, loved rock, and trumpets weren't not at all common in rock bands. laughing smiley

I had bought a set of used Ludwigs while still in high school.. AND played them in my first band.... and I didn't set aside the trumpet until after my time in the Army. In the Army I played a little with the base band ....after the army I put the trumpet away.... seldom picking it up... today I can't play it worth a damn. I can play the notes, not as well of course, but the tone? I can't even bare to hear it myself. laughing smiley

But back to my point... I don't like the drumlines or the bass line any more than I like the melody..... just as much but no more. And today I really do wish I could play the melody more often.

Singing just isn't the same to me, even though it's most definitely the melody. I love great vocalists as much as the next guy but in truth... never heard a human voice I like as much as a musical instrument.
