Thats an emotively worded generalization, and misleading to TS. Hit the internet and see how highly regarded EVH's rhythm playing is among the very best guitarists in the world.

I'm not gonna argue this one any further. I'm standing by what I said.

You want interesting rhythms that can be done without tuning down, try out funk music. Besides being stupidly fun, it's a lot of help to understanding syncopation. And Al Di Meola.

That'd be kind of silly. The dude uses drop D tuning, but he doesn't really chug on that low string.

I always thought Hendrix's rhythm was much better than his lead anyway...

Seeing as you mentioned Hendrix only, I'm going to assume you're into blues and classic rock.

Izzy Stradlin. Rhythm guitarist of Guns n Roses. Amazing guitarist. Try Nightrain, You Could Be Mine or Dust n Bones for what I consider some of his best rhythm work.

Rolling Stones. A thread dedicated to rhythm and not one mention of Keith Richards? Try Brown Sugar, Honkey Tonk Woman and Start Me Up.

Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Frusciante is very similar to Hendrix I think. Great guitarist. Try Under The Bridge, Can't Stop.

The Cult. Billy Duffy is a simple but awesome rhythm guitarist. Fire Woman, Lil Devil, Love Removal Machine.

Led Zeppelin. Cuz it's freakin' Jimmy Page. Communication Breakdown, Good Times, Bad Times, Kashmir.

AC/DC. Malcolm Young is a great example of what you can do with the same four chords.

Hope that helped.

Great songs for the rhythm playing can be found on Guns N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction. Izzy Stradlin is an amazing rhythm guitarist and his rhythm playing compliments Slash's lead very well. The 2 best from the album are probably Nightrain and Welcome To The Jungle.

Look into some Aussie Pub Rockers for good rhythm. AC/DC, The Angels (in the US they were Angel City or something like that), The Screaming Jets, INXS, Midnight Oil, Australian Crawl, The Living End and Rose Tattoo.

They're great to play along with, simple enough and if it's good enough for an Aussie pub, it's good enough anywhere.
