The Contenders: Page 4XW
He can write creative simple and aggressive guitar riffs. He is also a great singer check out the band Emigrate his side project band.
His work with The Police, a band that represented a new take on the idea of bass/drums/guitar trio in rock, was, arguably, the most innovative rhythm guitar playier of the last 30 (or so) years. - Brooklar
Creative player in a sea of sameness. He is really a good musician
Again, people just don't understand music theory like this guy. He could play 90% of their muted distortion with his testicles
This guys not a rhythm guitarist! He's an all around great guitarist! Seriously underrated, and definitally in my personal top 20 guitar players list!
Why is Pata number 52?! He should be in top ten or top 5. How dare you put PATA at number 52!
He should be higher than this. At least he should be in the top 8. Those solos he played with hide are amazing. Sometimes he even plays solo himself. Hide and pata are best dou guitarist..
Lamb of gods rhythms are crazy! And by the way zacky from a7x can barely play... Just saying
Known as a "folk musician", anyone who ever heard Havens strumming his Guild acoustic guitar, in his heyday, with his unorthodox alternate tunings, and use of right hand thumb for fretting, knows that Richie was a rhythm monster. No less a jazz guitar giant than Jim Hall sites Havens as a favorite. - Brooklar
I saw Richie live. He beat the hell out of that guitar with unorthodox rhythms and playing style - broke like six strings, lol!
Seriously. Listen to The Offspring. Specifically
He smokes Hetfield, in my not so humble opinion
His rythms in Sepultura are mindblowing, and he's a great thrash metal singer, that's why arise is the best album ever.V1 Comment
With Phil As I Lay Dying is incomplete...
Best rhythm guitarist of Bangladesh
No-one does rhythm like she does
How can Steve "the colonel" Cropper be in 73. Definitely Top 20 material. Underrated as hell. One great and groundbreaking guitarist with a real musical sense
Stax records soul man and all those hits plus he is a nice guy. Should be on the top of your list.
Truly awesome British rhythm guitarist so underrated
Kirk is the lead guitarist for Metallica, while James Hetfield is the actual rhythm guitarist.
Nope, I don't think he is good at rhythm guitar. Well personally I don't like his solos. I like Jame's solos and riffs more than his. - zxm
Simply the best... God among insects.
Can't believe that Marten isn't on the list! He also grooves and does some of the most complex, and technical metal rhythm guitar playing. Meshuggah's album obZen is proof of this.
