Best Position to Hold In a Band

A lot of people dream of being in a rock band, but which position in a band is the best to have?
The Top Ten
1 Lead Singer

The most noted member of the band, the lead singer or vocalist, has the majority of eyes on them. They have to constantly train their voice to keep an audience hooked on the band.

Lead singers are the ones who have the most eyes on them and have to constantly train their voice to cater to people everywhere. These are the most noted members of the band.

Yeah, the lead singer is the one who comes out as the identity of a band! Lead singers are always identified with the band.

2 Lead Guitarist

The talent and skill put into a great guitar player can sometimes get them more noticed than the lead singer.

Best position and most skill required. Also sounds the coolest.

I was a lead guitarist for many years. Oh, how I miss the babes...

3 Drummer

The drummer not only has the best seat in the house but also controls the tempo of the music and is responsible for keeping everyone else on tempo.

Even though you're secluded in the back, the drummer adds heavy beats to songs.

Least obnoxious member of the band, most chilled.

4 Bassist

Usually the most underrated member of a typical four- or five-piece band, but can still be just as important.

As important as the drummer. Look how people move their heads. They are always following the bass lines.

Generally, the guy with the most brains, most knowledge of music theory, and most talented.

5 Rhythm Guitarist

More important than the lead guitarist because this guy lays down the riffs everyone knows from the songs. However, if you aren't going to have one, the lead guitar can cover it. Although you can't have solos with a riff, this would make the song stronger.

Usually, the lead singer can also be the lead guitarist, but there are many bands with an extra guitarist.

6 Keyboardist / Pianist

Usually kind of underrated but adds flair and more emphasis on the tune, making them valuable.

7 Manager

Basically, you help make sure the band has a career.

8 Percussionist
9 Producer

You help manage the music recordings.

10 Groupie

11 Background Vocals
