Great rhytmn band to learn from

I've been learning from Hendrix for the past couple years, got about 8-10 more songs I'm gunna go through with him. Then after him I want to change up to all rhythm playing. What would be some great non-genre rhythm bands to learn from. I can come up with some ideas if I was gunna pick a certain genre. But anyone got anything solid that would just be general great rhythm playing?

Not very sure what your music tastes are, but the Red Hot Chili Peppers's ex-guitarist John Frusciante was a pretty amazing rhythm player, and before him the albums with Hillel Slovak had some cool beats.
If youre into funk that is

If you like Metal, the rhythm parts in Megadeth (Holy wars, to be more exact) still screw me over.

If you like metal, anything by trivium would help, if not, try foo fighters or queens of the Stone Age

Well, if you're into blues. Then you could check out Slash, he has tight power chord riffs which you need some tight rhythm for.

this will get your SENSE of rhythm better: goes all way 5/8 10/4 9/8 and 7/8 i think.

Well i have a few suggestions that you might want to check out, i'll sort them by genre though so it will be easier to go through.

Funk/Funk rock: Red hot chili peppers (anything from the first album up until Mothers milk.) Extreme, Tower of power, Defunkt ,James Brown, maybe even some rage against the machine (more groovy hard rock, but still)

Progressive rock & metal: Dream Theater, Circus Maximus, Seventh Wonder, Pagan's mind, Periphery, Animals as leaders, Meshuggah, Tesseract, Vildhjarta, Monuments, Symphony X, Anubis Gate, Emerson lake and palmer, Genesis, Gentle Giant, Yes, Rush and Tool. Many odd time signatures here.

80's disco music: Gloria Gaynor, Kool & The Gang, KC & The Sunshine Band, The Trammps, Chic, Van McCoy.

Other than that, Protest the Hero is a metal band thats good aswell.

You might want to start looking at jazz guitar aswell, playing rhythm (mostly chords) and melody aswell. Look into Joe Pass, Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Andreas Öberg, Charlie Hunter and so on!

I hope atleast one of these suggestions helped you. Good luck and keep practicing!

Eddie Van Halen's rhythm chops are often overlooked but he's a monster, Steve Cropper played loads of famous songs, Andy Summers uses some interesting voicings in The Police,

also try playing the riff to Give Me the Night by George Benson

What exactly is "non genre" music?

Anyway, I grew up listening to the big 4 thrash bands (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax). Those bands alone will teach you a thing or two about fast rhythm playing.

If those are too old for you, listen to Lamb of God, the Black Dahlia Murder, and As I Lay Dying, just to name a few.

There are other bands that get into more complex rhythms but many of them fail to deliver a nice 'groove' that is so important to grab the listener's attention. If 'complex' is what you're after, look at other bands, in other words. If tight, ferocious riffing is your aim, look at the bands I listed.

Dan DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots is imho, one of the Great rythym players. Also, the Lord of Guitar: Alex Lifeson of Rush. If you are into metal, James Hetfield.

I respect him for getting sober, but as far as his guitar work goes, his rhythm playing only sounds complex because when he was all kinds of slammed when he was recording their classic albums and couldn't keep consistent rhythms going. Not exactly a high standard to shoot for.
