Ex­amp le 8 Eric John­son

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Strat Licks -

Eric John­son plays his 1954 Sun­burst Stra­to­caster, lov­ingly named ‘ Vir­ginia’ in his tu­to­rial video, To­tal Elec­tric Gui­tar, with jaw- drop­ping re­sults. He has since sold it, but his own sig­na­ture Strat has many of the same fea­tures as the old clas­sic. Our ex­am­ple com­bines open-voiced triad arpeg­gios with a fast pen­ta­tonic run. Both the con­cepts are key com­po­nents of the EJ style, as is the vi­o­lin-like over­drive you’ll need to make the notes sing.
