I'm not sure if I've ever seen this question broached here. So who would you consider your favorite Canadian guitar player?
I've never really given it much thought but I guess I have to say for rock it would be Rik Emmet. For country Redd Volkaert. I'm going to have to explore more Canadian players so hopefully this thread will uncover some I don't know, have forgotten about or didn't realize were Canadian.

Easy. Neil Young. People make jokes about his one note solo in Cinnamon Girl but on electric Neil plays with an intensity few can match and on acoustic he is deceptively tricky.

By album sales, live impressions, as a human and guitarist, or just how mindblowing their material is?

Thornley and Dave from the salads have chops and were super nice in person.
