Don Ross, né le 19 novembre 1960 à Montréal au Canada, est un guitariste canadien.

Ross est un guitariste autodidacte dont la musique est inspirée de divers courants musicaux comme le rock, le jazz, le folk et la musique classique lui permettant de créer un style particulier qu'il appelle lui même «heavy wood». Ross utilise la technique du tapping. Bruce Cockburn dit de lui que « personne ne peut faire ce qu'il fait avec une guitare sèche. Il frappe les cordes si vite qu'on peut penser qu'il va jouer des fausses notes, mais il ne perd jamais le contrôle.»

Ross est diplômé en musique à l'université York à Toronto en 1983.

Il est le premier et le seul guitariste au monde à avoir remporté deux fois le U.S. National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship en 1988 et 1996.

Il joue dans le groupe Men of Steel. Ce groupe rassemble plusieurs musiciens internationaux tels Dan Crary, le guitariste acoustique Beppe Gambetta mais aussi le guitariste Tony McManus.

--English Version--

Don Ross (born November 19, 1960 in Montreal, Quebec to Scottish and Mi'kmaq parents) is a Canadian fingerstyle guitarist noted for the emotion and intensity of his playing as well as his use of extended technique.

Ross's music borrows from blues, jazz, folk and classical music creating a style that he describes as "heavy wood". Ross is the only person to twice win the U.S. National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship (1988 and 1996). His album Huron Street reached the top ten on the Billboard new age chart. In the liner notes to Ross' 2003 album Robot Monster, Bruce Cockburn writes, "Nobody does what Don Ross does with an acoustic guitar. He takes the corners so fast you think he's going to roll, but he never loses control."

Ross names Bruce Cockburn, Leo Kottke, John Renbourn, Pierre Bensusan, Keith Jarrett, Egberto Gismonti and Pat Metheny as his main sources of inspiration. His advanced technique and his sure feeling for rhythm combine with uncommon ideas to make his style instantly recognizable. He often uses percussive techniques and plays intricate down- and upstroke patterns with his thumb. His use of acrylic nails gives him a sharp and much defined tone.

Don Ross played a Lowden S-10 in the beginning of his career, but since 1997 has played a Lowden O-10. Today he plays custom-made guitars by Marc Beneteau, a Canadian luthier from St. Thomas, Ontario. The Beneteaus are equipped with a combination of microphone and K&K pickups. Occasionally he plays a baritone guitar by Marc Beneteau, or uses a custom 7-string by Oskar Graf, a luthier from Clarendon, Ontario.
