Hello my name is Johnnie Castleman. I was born and raised in Springdale Arkansas! I have been playing guitar,writing songs,and singing for 33 years. I have written several songs music and lyrics.I am a self taught guitarist. I learnt how to play by ear and dedication! My love of music started at a young age. The first instrument I learnt how to play was a cornet, it's the same as a trumpet. Then I discovered the guitar and have been playing since 1981! The bands that influenced me to want to play guitar were Lynyrd Skynyrd, CCR,Molly Hatchet, Kiss and 60's and 70's music,but my biggest influence was my older brother! I listen to all kinds of music, if I feel something from it I like it!
