Rudolf deserves the top place! He created Scorpions and beats every single rhythm guitar players!
His awesome guitar-playing and rhythms are one thing, but the way he plays and all the energy he uses on the scene, makes him the best rhythm guitarist by miles.
just listen to those riffs! It will blow your head off!
He touches my soul and makes it weep. No one else does that.V 1 Comment
Matt Tuck is amazing. He plays guitar, is the lead singer and does screaming as well, how much better can you get? Bullet would be lost without him, and then even though he's a rhythm guitarist, he can step up and play solo' just like Padge. Listen to the solo of Heart's Burst Into Fire by Bullet For My Valentine and you will hear Matt's talent.
What a rhythm guitarist for this generation. Without matt there is no Bullet For My Valentine
Just listen Alone and Waking The Demon;
Such a hard riffs and he sing over them
Richie just doesn't get enough credit. Even the heaviest of heavy metal heads will get caught listening to good ol' Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora's licks.
Richie always be the best their is, the best there was, and the best their will be...
The Clash wouldn't be what they were without Joe laying down a steady beat.
Just listen to London Calling, Brand New Cadillac and Train in Vain
The dude took the name "Strummer"! Once he did that he had to be great. His abilities really shine in the Mescaleros.
Bad ass!V 1 Comment
He is really awesome much better than Ray Toro but in life you can't get what you want always so listen to the Art of Life by X Japan
Awesome guitarist, never seen someone with so much energy on stage
He is so much awesome with his own style playing sick rhythm.
He is at #42. I think it isn't a wrong place for him. He should be between 50-70. - zxm
He Is A Amazing Guitarist
He might not have the greatest wickedest shreddest solo but he's got great rhythm that would just stick in your mind
Inspired me to start playing guitar. A true legend. Love you BJA!V 1 Comment
Why is roope excluded? He is also the essence of children of bodom and he is really talented!
He writes most of the killer riffs. Alexi writes the lyrics and solos. This guy is the heart of COB
I think he is the best rhythm guitarist guys just listen to angels don't kill, every time I die and banned from heaven then you know how tallented he is.
I love his song named "Bendeki Gercegi". It is really a good song and he is the one of the most popular and successful rhythm guitarists in the world. Forever YusDen!V 2 Comments
His rythms in Sepultura are mindblowing, and he's a great thrash metal singer, that's why arise is the best album ever.V 1 Comment
Simply a genius!
Daron can keep a REALLY fast, amazing, beat with a guitar, while singing almost the whole time in many of the newer songs. Extremely talented.
I keep trying to convince people that he is a guitar virtuoso but they wont believe me but seriously try playing one of his songs you'll see - Miles101
Awesome guitar player. He knows that instrument possibly better than any other rhythm player. He can play a particular note a handful of different ways all over the neck. China Cat Sunflower is a great showcase of his talent. In the main riff, he's the guy playing notes on the high end. During Jerry's solos, his classic rhythms drive the song beautifully. Great improviser. He jams notes in between Jerry's that are just so tasty - especially his harmonics.
Seriously, THE best rhythm guitarist of all time. His rhythm is inspired by not other rhythm guitarist, but instead jazz piano. Different genre, as well as a different instrument. He plays with so many different fills, and they are all over the place. Amazing.
Rhythm guitar is about ensuring the songs move forward and filling gaps. Weir does both creatively and instinctively. Frequently, he would play counterpoint to Garcia's leads, giving the music a richer sound and broader context.
Weather report suite, just listen to that song and you'll know why bobby is so goodV 9 Comments
Best rhythm guitarist and the best rapper! Linkin Park rocks, Mike Shinoda for the win!
I think LP are a pretty underrated band in terms of technique, sure, there are a milestone of bands that are more technical than LP, but I think Mike is just a great guitar player and he's the mastermind behind Linkin Park, he's my idol - Nintendonix
Mike Shinoda is at 50!
Rapper-lyricist-Guitarist- pianist of the greatest band of 00's doesn't deserve to be at 50! Come on!
Just listen to his rhythm guitar on Around and Around. It anchors the whole song. It has great feel and intensifies as the song goes on. It gives Keith the freedom to play his guitar part.
When you're with The Stones, you gotta rock.
Because he's the best rock star ever!
