In this free video guitar lesson we will take a look at Eric Johnson’s exciting use of pedal tones in his solo playing.
Eric Johnson usually employs hybrid picking to accocmplish a fast fluid pedal tone sound that fluently transitions between many different strings. The hybrid picking pattern that he uses is actually quite simple and straightforward and shouldn’t present much of a problem to get under your fingers.
Try and keep the note separation clean because letting two notes rings together will create a pretty dissonant and ugly sound, especially when using a high gain setting.
