I don't really understand your question... What do you mean "to be lead"?

Well, dude, if you are just playing power chords then you are a rhythm guitarist, not a lead guitarist.

Not really, for example, you can play little melodic things over the rhythm... but soloing is the most fun part of lead guitar!

You can use double stops and chords for parts of a solo, but typically the majority of the solo are single notes. If you're going to play lead, you need to learn to solo. There are free blues backing tracks all over the internet, download some, learn the pentatonic scale and go for it!

Lead is basically everything that isn't chords. Rhythm is chords. That's not like a definite divide cause you can mix, but generally that's what the two are.

So ya, if you were playing lead, you'd be the one to do a solo if a song had it. If you want to play lead, two things you really want to work on are scales and double picking (picking up and down on just one string)

There is a very vague line between lead and rhythm guitar...

That's a start.
I get the feeling that you're under the impression that you should somehow magically be able to play like a pro in a short time and, if I can be honest with you, it can take some people MANY YEARS of countless hours of practice and study to be able to do some of the things that you can not yet do.
Don't be so hard on yourself. Just continue to practice and play music for the joy of playing music. You'll continue to grow and improve over time, even if it takes a long time.

That would be arpegiating through a chord, in this case a power chord.

A good example of this would be "By Your Side" by Tenth Avenue North. For the verses the guitar player is just arpegiating 4 simple chords. If my limited knowledge of theory is correct.

I know it takes a
LONG TIME, but I should make my own song without all power chords by now
I mean everyone says to learn others solos I cant the song how am I going to play the solo?
Anyways the point is that with solos I would be happy if I could make one that was not taken straight form the power chords

Thatís the big problem if I have to you know do something like study it then there goes the fun
For me I learn by messing around on the guitar I know that you have to study but I rather be a n00b on guitar have fun then be as good as (enter you fav gutsiest here)

Do you know anything about keys? Do you know what key your song is in? If you do, and you also know some scales, it shouldn't be hard to figure out a solo. I mean, not like an EVH solo or anything, but even if it's just a few notes, it's still a solo.
