Rush's Alex Lifeson Voted Greatest Canadian Guitarist

(hennemusic) Canada's national broadcaster, CBC Radio, have named Rush's Alex Lifeson as the Greatest Canadian Guitarist in a new in-house poll.

November is Guitar Month at CBC Music, and the company put together a list of the 25 greatest Canadian guitarists ever. The list was assembled by a panel of CBC producers and hosts, who compiled all of the nominations and ranked the guitarists accordingly.

The list spans several genres and generations. Some were chosen for their raw talent, others for their musical impact and some for their ingenuity. There are a few surprises and a few omissions. In fact, there are many amazing guitarists who belong on this list, but there are only 25 spots. If your favourite guitar player isn't on the list, the CBC can assure you they were probably number 26 this time around. See who else made the list.
