Foo Fighters do it pretty well.
Maybe the two rhythms can harmonize and the lead can do lead stuff.
As drop e 8 string main, there's no such thing as too low for me now.
The answer is session musicians.
A Tool-esque/proggy band from London do the 3-guitar thing very well:
It really adds to their live shows, as they do a lot of textures. Plus they all use very different kit so when they do the heavy riffs they're very heavy indeed.
It also helps that they're all very good musicians, though.
I'll just leave this here...
been a couple months since we picked up a third. its actually turning out pretty good. all of us are on the same page and are harmonizing and alienating alot of the leads. im rather glad to of picked up a third guy.
i saw whitechapel live, and it made an enormous difference being able to keep two rhythm guitars while a leads were being played.
As long as you can keep the live mix tight, it's beneficial to have guitars that play more of the material that you would typically have to cut from recorded versions of songs to play live.
my band had 3 guitarists many years ago and it was completely unnecessary. That being said we don't have many harmonized leads.
I used to listen to a band called "The Third and the Mortal" a long time ago... They had 3 guitars also...
Basically these 2. I don't see how the benefit of slightly more texture in the guitar parts will make up for the process of finding a guitarist who can play nice with 2 other guitarists in a band.
I liked that!
