Podcast 172: Luke Doucet

On today’s Fretboard Journal Podcast, we talk to Luke Doucet of Whitehorse. Doucet tells us about his upbringing in Canada and his relatively late start into the world of guitars, along with the fateful day he met his first real guitar teacher in Winnipeg. We then hear about how Doucet is turning his own son Jimmy onto music and guitars and how Jimmy (at the ripe old age of three) helped shape the sound of Whitehorse’s 2017 album, Panther in the Dollhouse. We also talk guitars, including Doucet’s Gretsch White Falcon, his Fender Custom Shop Jazzmaster and his Creston Lea offset.
