There are often two types of guitars in bands; the lead guitar, which adds an alternative melody to the vocal line, and the rhythm guitar, which pads out the sound by using chords. In three-piece bands (guitar, bass, drums) the guitar will normally play lead, and the bass will often be more complicated to add some extra rhythm where the extra guitar is missing.

(Note: lead and rhythm guitars are not different makes of guitar, like Fenders & Gibsons.)
