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
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.
Zoltan is amazing I mean look at the whole way of the fist album and all of the other ffdp albums, he is by far the bestV 2 Comments
He should be at the first 50, he has adapted to play with Buckethead, Robin Finck, Bumblefoot, DJ Ashba, and Slash, listen Knockin' On Heavens Door 2002-2014, and Nightrain 2002-Today, he's just awesome,
The reason he does not get so much appreciation is because Izzy Stradlin is more popular as the rhythm guitarist of Guns N' Roses. Not denying that Izzy is great, but not as a guitarist, Richard can do much more. If you don't believe me, go listen to Knocking On Heaven's Door live at O2 Arena, London (2012).
Can play old Rhythms he didn't make and has made new ones.
Cannibal corpse lead guitarist, even Jeff Loomis has praised him to be the best guitarist to play with him in Nevermore, one seriously technical and talented guitarist.
Extremely tight, fast and technical rhythm style. Perfect hand synchronization. He composes fantastic riffs, and possibly the most influential black metal guitarist ever.
This list should be renamed "The rhythm guitarists that are in the most famous mainstream bands"
