Subject: RE: Really Good, Unknown Guitarists
I know a finger picker named Kenneth Ray Whitfield from around Avalon,Ms. His fingers do a ballet on the frets. He can play just like Mississippi John Hurt. His fingers are amazing and his sound is spellbinding. I've heard alot of people try this style and some get away with it but, Kenneth Ray has it mastered. There's nobody living that even comes close. Mr."khandu" writes into mudcat sometimes.I've read his stuff. Take my word on it. When most really good guitar pickers hear Kenneth Ray they're ready to pack it in and give up!
