My fav rhythm guitarist is Corey Wong. Who are some others to listen to?
I grew up with this guy that called himself a "rhythmer" ......and he was pretty dang good at it in his Fab Four band.....
can't recall his name though.....John something or other.........I jest
John Lennon was a good one...
Doyle Bramhall II often joins Eric Clapton on stage and in the studio.
I think he played a “The Strat”, amirite?
I just found out they're still around...Todd Park Mohr...Big Head Todd and the Monsters
They're perpetual tourers. Always been out there, always will be.
Pete Townsend, Mark Knofler, Walter Becker (although WB not really known for playing Strats that much)
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...
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..
Richard Bennett, who was with Mark Knopfler for sometime.
I think Bryan Adams has always been highly underrated as a rhythm guitarist!
