my band's lead guitar player is absolutely horrible at playing guitar solos. I try again and again to give him tips about playing, but he doesn't listen. Its getting to the point where I cant even listen to my own band anymore. just listen to this garbage: https://soundcloud.com/joe-studer/taba-take2 he doesnt even try to sit down and write solos, and i know he can do it since knows a ton about theory. it sounds like he have no control over their picks. its so sloppy. I'm a better soloist and I haven't been playing as long. its really frustrating. I don't know what to do... cant find a replacement and wouldn't really want to. we've been together for 4 years now. its like they he is stuck at an intermediate level of skill and doesnt know how to improve. help? EDIT: The final decision was to move on without our current lead guitarist. Former rhythm/vocal is now taking over the solos. He is much better at rhythm and timing. We will continue to work on our musicianship.
