  6. I've never really been able to tell the difference between rhythm guitars for example the Beatles my favorite band. John Lennon he played rhythm guitar but when I saw them playing live all he did was strum his fingers and I never heard his guitar even if I tried to really focus on him like me trying to just listen to him play guitar I just couldn't! So can anyone explain to me what a rhythm guitar does?
