    They're perpetual tourers. Always been out there, always will be.

    I, over the course of time, just lost track of them. They're a solid band.

    Showing my age here but as a straight rhythm guitar player Bruce Welsh (Shadows) has got to be included.

    ^This and I'll add Jimi Hendrix who imo is underrated as a rhythm player.

    SRV - he was a phenomenal lead player of course, but he was just as good at rhythm. Who else could play that Pride And Joy shuffle and make it look and sound so effortless? And then there's the intro to Rude Mood, which is mega-fast, but the timing is perfect, even before the rest of the band come in. Can you tell I was listening to the Texas Flood LP yesterday?

    He's the first one, actually the only one that I thought of. I lead a very sheltered life... :D

    I agree with Lankytwang BUT here he is at 1 minute 20 making a mistake

    Every year Shadows fans gather and they have for a couple of days "Shadowmania" , Bruce is usually there with his own Shadows

    Yep..the gremlins can sneak up on you anytime....I think the Strat he is playing is the first one brought into the UK by Cliff for Hank..I know Bruce still has it. When interviewed on the recent "Shadows at 60 " documentary he said it "belongs to Cliff"...Wonder what it would fetch at auction..:rolleyes::eek:

    I think Bryan Adams has always been highly underrated as a rhythm guitarist!
