Well, here's a real old one, The Question by The Moody Blues. Don't know how complicated it is, but it is certainly fast. I believe Justin Hayward used an open tuning on this. Beautiful song.

Here's the whole song:

And you can hear the fast rhythm guitar best here:

This song will give your wrist a real workout. And the amazing thing is how beautifully Justin sings while he plays this song.

Edit- Sorry, but I found one more, Justin playing this on electric. But you can hear and see how fast his strumming is:

I think if you want to find advanced rhythm the wide world of funk might be your best bet. Also, don't be afraid to experiment with a rhythm already played by a different instrument (such as sax or keyboard) and apply it to your acoustic.

There is a band that has guitar work similar to DMB called Bascom Hill, and if you want excellent rhythm work listen to their guitarist.

The audio isn't the best and the main guitar rhythm doesn't kick in until about 50 seconds in, but I hope this helps. Enjoy

I guess it depends on what you mean by "advance rhythm". Frank Zappa's work has lots of odd time signatures and polyrhythms. Dave Brubeck's Take Five is in 5/4 time and parts of it are quick and his Blue Rondo a la Turk is in 9/8 and begins pretty fast.

Ever heard of Guitar Hero Guitar Hero II and Guitar Hero Encore. Or even Rock Band the game. They have ome really fast guitar pieces on there that you can look up on any website that has tabs.

try something like Peter Townsend's (The Who) Pinball Wizard - that'll get your strumming cranked up.

Take a look at Jimi Hendrix.He blends in rhythm and lead at the same time and makes it flow.Check out the guitar parts for Little Wing, Castles Made Of Sand, and The Wind Cries Mary.
