Robert White (guitarist)

Robert White (born 19 November 1936 in Billmyre, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, U.S.; died 27 October 1994 in Los Angeles, California, U.S.) was an African-American musician. Of note for being one of the main guitarists for Motown Records' in-house studio band, the Funk Brothers, White is best known for performing the familiar guitar riff on The Temptations' number-one hit single "My Girl", but played the guitar on many successful Motown records, including "Can I Get a Witness" by Marvin Gaye, "You Keep Me Hangin' On" by The Supremes, "My Cherie Amour" by Stevie Wonder, and "It's a Shame" by The Spinners.

Oscar Moore and Wes Montgomery were among White's influences. Among the guitars White used to record were the Gibson ES 335 and the Gibson L-5.
