Who’s the greatest rhythm guitarist of all time?

By the very nature of their role, lead guitarists tend to get all the attention. But rhythm players are the ones delivering the strut, the fire and – dare we say it – the chonk that drives the song and provides the backbone for soloists to widdle all over.

And now it’s time to shine a light on the rhythm kings: we want you to vote for the best rhythm guitarists to ever hammer out a riff or arpeggiate a classic chord progression. Of course, some lead guitarists are such good rhythm players that we could not leave them off this list, so forgive us a few virtuosos here and there.
