The best idea is to set your amp up at a sensible level relative to the drums, you shouldn't need monitors then apart from other things you want to hear. Place the amp as far away as you physically can from you and make sure the speaker(s) is angled towards roughly where your head would be.
That works in small to medium indoor venues (depending on the amp obvs) but you've got no chance outside or in large venues... Not that you're incorrect about the relative 'acoustic' volumes but once you start needing drums in the monitors you need guitar too.
Having said that I tend to get loads of guitar anyway because my amp looks so small

Worse when it's the house amp and you can't do anything about it. Except kneel down, lean into it and look fucking cool.

Arrrrgh, surely every band that comes through the venue points out the problem to the management? "your house cab is pointing at my legs, it should be pointing at my ears!" but yeh i've seen it in all sorts of venues.

You can get little stands for smaller cabs/combos which will raise and/or tilt the cab back

I think Haze was just saying there's no need to mic the cab at rehearsal

A sensible person would have a rough idea from rehearsal on what volume to set their amp to though.

Never bother with monitors, regardless of the size of the venue. Large ones are nicer as the volume on stage is a lot lower.

SM57's are popular because they are cheap, robust and designed to be rammed up against a guitar cab.
I believe Bellamy uses a Royer R121, which being a ribbon, is a bit delicate and as such, he has to mic up a cabinet off-stage. It's popular as a studio mic for guitar amps.

Pointless buying a microphone solely for live use, most venues will have 57's.
the R121 is one of my personal favorites, it can handle around 130db SPL no sweat - despite it being a ribbon

also personally,

MD421 or R121 for studio,
SM57 or an E609 live.

im surprised nobodys thrown the sm7b in here... also for high spl levels on loud cabs, an electro voice re-20 can bring out a really nice tone, its a pretty 'creamy' mic

Surely everone knows that when you play live you place your amp atop of a few empty beer cases.
