WHITEY JOHNSON'S KITCHEN

YOU BETTER COME ON IN TO MY KITCHEN!

Welcome to Whitey's Kitchen, a place where I go to surround myself with the wonderful sounds of my favorite guitar pickers! I am an amateur singer-songwriter with some 30 years of trying to master the guitar. I have found Wholenote to be the best learning experience and movitator!

WHAT I PLAY

Currently I am trying to pick up fingerstyle and use the lessons on folk, country and blues, as well as some of the "classical" styles.I play an Epiphone PR350SR and a 1969 Yamaha FG150. I also have a Triggs Chamber electric that I customized for electric blues. I play amped thru a Silvertone 1481 with a vintage R&A 12" speaker for electric, and a Harmony 303A with a vintage University 12" and alnico mid and tweeter for acoustic.
