Additionally, Wyatt is shown improvisationally accompanying various instruments (banjo, fiddle, guitar, mandolin) and then analyzing what he has done to provide the rhythmic foundation behind each instrument.

He has been a member of the Tony Rice Unit since 1984. Of Wyatt's rhythm, Tony Rice has said, "He gave the band a fuller voice and an easily identifiable sound. Things that I did with the guitar I could not otherwise have done if Wyatt's rhythm guitar had not been there."

For nearly 19 years Joe Carr wrote a column for Flatpicking Guitar Magazine on the topic of rhythm guitar. Each of Joe’s articles not only addressed a very interesting and important rhythm guitar topic, he also provided wonderful historical context in his text, tabs and recordings. He brought our readers many wonderful examples of bluegrass, folk, blues, jazz, swing, Irish, and Western swing rhythm styles.
Over the years Joe’s column featured transcriptions of great early rhythm players such as Riley Puckett, Red Smiley, Jimmy Martin, Jimmie Rodgers, Edd Mayfield, Hank Snow, Doc Watson, Rodney Dillard, John Herald, Josh White, Charlie Monroe, Homer Haynes, Eldin Shamblin, Tommy Allsup, Charlie Waller, Arther Smith, and Lonnie Johnson. His column also covered the styles of more contemporary players like Clarence White, Tony Rice, Charles Sawtelle, Peter Rowan, Roland White, Del McCoury, Wyatt Rice, David Grier, and John Doyle. Additionally, his column covered many technical rhythm guitar topics such as extended chords, chord substitutions, and alternate chord progressions. Joe’s rhythm guitar knowledge was extensive and he graciously and generously shared it though his column in this magazine.
