Country - the first lead break normally comes after the first chorus. The chorus comes after the second verse.
But, like already said it can come whenever. Or not at all. About 3/4 of our songs have a solo break, which means about a quarter of our songs do not have a break. Why? The story line just does not leave room for a lead break.
Should mention, we have big gigs and small gigs, i.e. sometime the lead electric and or pedal steel are with us, and if so they take care of the lead breaks. If they are not with us, on the small gigs, we do not have lead breaks the vocalist takes care of the melody. My point; a lead break is not mandatory.
