[p]Yes, lead guitar basics are covered in the style courses. They are integrated with the overall curriculum, so you get a complete learning system to guide you step by step through the knowledge & skills. I know you specified lead guitar. But it's very important to know how lead guitar concepts & skills are built from & relate to rhythm playing. So, pick a style: Blues, Country, Rock. Then work your way through level 1 & 2!
For example if you pick the Rock 1 course, you'll see Anders lays down the basic ideas & skills in chapters 1 & 2. Then in chapter 3 you'll be ready to start learning lead ideas & skills!
You can just start at chapter 3. But there's a chance you might miss out on learning an important idea or skill, a step in the process.
There are also specialized tutorials that only focus on one topic. For example I did a series of tutorials only improvisation that show how to play lead melodies or solos. But these assume you already have a certain level of knowledge & skills.
Hope this helps! Please ask more if necessary & best of success!
