backsplash questions


So, I've looked far and wide, and am trying to get a straight answer to my specific situation (isn't that the way it always is?)

I ripped out my old tile backsplash and the damaged drywall with it, put in new greenboard, secured it to studs. I plan on taping (mesh drywall tape) and doing a crude, but flat mudjob (joint compound ok?) over the seams, about 4 total seams, running vertically from counter to cabinet. Anyone see problems there?

Then, I'm gonna prime the mudded seams, and use mastic to attach 1x2" porcelain tiles to the wall. I've read some people say never use mastic, EVER; some say it's okay in this situation; some say mastic only under ceramic, not porcelain; some say porcelain is okay if it's small tile sizes.

So, do the more seasoned guys here see any problems with my plan?
Thanks for any and all responses. Always appreciated.
