Famous Guitar Players from Canada

Voting Rules
Only guitarists from Canada.

Canada has produced some great guitar players over the years, including guitarists who specialize in rock, metal, jazz, folk, classical, acoustic, blues, and country music. The male and female instrumentalists featured below not only identify as Canadian natives, but they are also some of the best guitar players to ever live. So if you're based in Canada, from Canada, or just love all things Canadian, then definitely check out these musicians' discographies. From the OGs Ben Mink, Bryan Adams, Geddy Lee and Neil Young, to Grammy winning singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, many of the artists/singers listed below have sold out countless venues worldwide, and some are even members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 

If you're still wondering, "who are the greatest Canadian guitarists?" and "which guitar players are from Canada?" then look no further! And if you happen to be a Canadian guitarist as well, then I hope that this list makes you proud.
