I think I have to disagree with all of you. In my opinion, Jeff Martin of the Tea Party is Canada's greatest guitarist. He learned how to play guitar on a lot of middle eastern string instruments, and as a result he can do some absolutely astounding things on a guitar.

Just watch him play "The Bazaar", for example. Impressive, impressive stuff.

David Wilcox... considering he never picked up a guitar until his mid 20's... he is the blues man ... waffle house... layin pipe.... what a voice what an artist....
David Gogo.. pheonominal guitarist....Almost a Canadian SRV

Others: or course Alex Liefson.. "We are not worthy"

Wilcox is crazy. He comes up with some great stuff.

Do the Bearcat, man.

He plays one of those guitars that lets you bend notes behind the nut, I think. Can't remember what they're called at the moment...

Canada's greatest guitarists..... hmmm there is quite a list of our best guitar players and I would concurr with some of them already mentioned..such as:

Alex Lifeson (or whatever his real name is?)
Randy Bachman
Liona Boyd
Lenny Breau
Frank Marino

But I would have to say Canada's current Best Guitar Player is Marc Atkinson BC Gypsy Jazz player...absolutely phenominal in the Django style, clean very artistic, and a virtuoso at this class.

In addition I had recent opportunity to see a great BC Blues guitar player, Mr Brandon Issaac Definitely a top notch blues guitar player and very entertaining.

Of course there is Bruce Cockburn whose acoustic playing is 2nd to none, very articulate, deadly accurate and always with an alternative style and beat that is exclusively his own style.

So there's a few to chew on and if you haven't heard of some these folks, you may be intrested to check them out. I'm sure I will think of a few more over the next few days.

OOps last post I forgot Jeff Healy on the list. The man was an incredibly gifted musician, his blues guitar playing was without a doubt Canada's very best, and the jazz album is definitely one of my all time favourites
