Eric Johnson is known for his seamless and fast guitar runs that encompass large portions of the neck. This lesson is going to focus on how he usually ascends during fast passages.
A large part of Eric Johnson's soloing style uses fast descending pentatonic phrases along with fast ascending arpeggio phrases that are picked using economy picking.
By no means am I saying that is everything that Eric does, on the contrary he mixes his playing up like almost no other guitarist on the planet. I am just bringing to your attention certain musical and technical devices that he favors over others.
Pay close attention to the picking hand in the lesson so you can fully understand the economy picking that is going on.
