Eric Johnson

Eric Johnson has probably the most unique and beautiful tone of any electric blues and rock guitarist I know of. He’s not a shredder like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, or Yngwie Malmsteen, but he’s very quick on the fretboard. His picking and chording patterns are quite complex. His style ranges from rock (Cliffs of Dover) to jazz (Manhattan, Tribute to Wes) to blues (E Blues Shuffle) to country. But again, what sets him apart is his tone(s). They are gorgeous. Hope you enjoy him.


SRV: this is a tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughn:

Cliffs of Dover: Catch his signature tone. It’s unique and beautiful.

Desert Rose: Favorite of mine and my two sons:

Bossa nova jam: Really cool jazz sound. Very listenable.

Tribute to Wes: A tribute to the great jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery. The octave work was Wes’ signature and Eric really demonstrates just how versatile he is on this and the previous number.

E Blues Shuffle: Ripping good ride!
