Yeah, I guess a bit more theory could be useful in analyzing other songs for things I might want to use, and maybe I could use some to help me improve my lead playing. Except I'm not sure if I even want to play leads parts anymore. If I do decide to continue doing solos and whatnot I think I might completely change my approach, and start doing everything in chords and double stops and things, much more like I'm doing with my rhythm parts now. In fact I'd really like to be able to "solo" and hold down the groove at the same time.

I feel like you guys are a lot more technically oriented than I am, so I guess it make sense that you would be a bit more concerned with theory than me. I used to care a lot about technical skill, but then I realized that I can't actually play technically advanced stuff, and I don't think I'll ever be able to, so I changed my focus to sound and tone. As far as I know there isn't any tone theory, haha.

As far as getting technical go i'd just like to say that i don't care about being extremely fast and shredy, it's a lot more important to me to be able to be flexible with my playing, i.e. being able to pick up weird fingering/picking patterns/rhythms easily
I think of technic like i think of theory, it's a tool that's nice to have as good as possible, but it's not the music itself

And if you wanna improve your lead work on rhythms. It's a lot more important to lead than people think

Yeah, thats pretty much what I've been thinking. Except like I was saying, starting with chords and stuff and just changing notes in the chords for the solo stuff.
