Cinda!! I soo miss you! (Hugs) Glad you're still around and playing. :)
Nothing wrong with being more of a rhythm player or even an acoustic player. We all have to find our calling and from that, sometimes a little soul searching is in order.
The advice I give all my students is, "learn a bit of everything but don't be afraid to excel in a few things". We're all kinda known for something sooner or later, ya know? You just kinda fall into it without trying to plan it.
I started just wanting to play Jim Croce tunes on acoustic at campfire parties....got bit by the 80's bug thanks to EVH, and can't play a Jim Croce song to this day nor have I ever played at a camp fire party. LOL!! I never once wanted to play lead guitar let alone rock/metal. A few years go by, you start picking up on other things as well.
So now I'm doing classic rock, hard rock, metal, blues and pop. I'm perfectly happy with those styles and have really worked on them to where I feel confident that I can play with and for anyone. Some guys want to learn loads of stuff...that's cool too..but I'm happy being a 4-trick-pony. I have no desire to learn country, jazz or fusion...it's all about happiness and being right where you want to be. :)
