Probably a flamenco guitarist. They are the best at it. Paco de Lucia comes to mind.

I wouldn't consider Hendrix or Van Halen to be rhythm guitarists! I voted for Malcolm Young, who is a rhythm guitarist, Angus says Malcolm is a better player than he is.

If you listen to those Beatle songs John is really chugging out some great rhythm.

If you’re the only guitarist in the band, doesn’t that automatically make you the lead guitarist?

Utter nonsense list. Jimi Hendrix a rhythm guitarist. Bob Weir(not saying he is best) didn't even qualify as a rhythm guitarist.

Right, and what about Ronnie? If Hendrix is rhythm surely Ron Wood is.

Hendrix was a great lead and rhythm guitarist, as was Chuck Berry, as was Jeff Beck, as was Eric Clapton, as was Jimmy Page, and on and on....

So chords= rhythm and solos= lead I’m inferring? They’re just looking at the chord playing aspect vs the soloing aspect. I see.

Bloomfield was surprised to find that Jimi was extremely interested in form. In a few seconds of playing, Jimi could give him an idea of the entire structure. “That’s why he liked rhythm guitar playing so much — the rhythm guitar could lay out the structure for the whole song. Jimi would always say, ‘This is a world of lead guitar players, but the most essential thing to learn is the time, the rhythm.’”
Bloomfield laughed, “He once told me he wanted to burn Clapton to death because he didn’t play rhythm.”
(— from Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child Of The Aquarian Age [alt. title: ‘Scuse Me While I Kiss The Sky] by David Henderson)

Jimi and Keith are two ace rhythm guitarists for me.

I wouldn’t have him on that list, but Jimi was a wonderfully rhythmic player. His chord playing was funky, he slipped in and out of the chords to a tune a lot, little fills around them.

Of course I love Keith, but I also like James Hetfield (Metallica) and Stone Gossard (Pearl Jam). Here’s why:

James (speed and precision): [m.youtube.com]

Stone (groove): [m.youtube.com]
