All lot of the old blues players had well-developed skills of this kind,
including my hero Fred McDowell. Flamenco players also have it in
spades. Any other examples that depend on the guitar player's rhythmic
skills, as opposed to just a good sense of timing and expression, where
the music is made in large part by the rhythm?

Also check out the various versions of him doing Vaseline Machine Gun
that you can find on the web. The high octane version when he was young,
and the funkier way he plays it now.
He really is one of the greats of all-time. Tommy Emmanuel is another
