Is there any lesson where i can learn what he's doing at 0.34 and 1.45, it's too fast for me to hear what to play, i know it's probably just alternate picking, i can't find anything like this in the Eric Johnson lessons here on GMC.

I would recommend buying that Eric Johnson instructional video if possible. Eric is a true original that does alot more than just play fast. It's what he plays at speed, and how it sounds, that is just incredible.

I know that's not what you meant, but after just watching that little 2 minute video myself, I was completely knocked out, again, by how toneful Eric is. His chord progressions are beautiful, his lead runs are pentatonic masterpieces, and the only other player, in my opinion, that plays with that kind of unbelievable tone is Andy Timmons, who happens to be a big fan of Erics' for all of the above-mentioned.

Every time I watch and listen to Eric Johnson, I am knocked out by how soulful his playing is. The guy is one of the best there is, no doubt.

To play some of his runs would be quite an accomplishment. To have the vibe of an Eric Johnson or an Andy Timmons would be something else entirely. There aren't too many guitar players that can combine soul, technique, and tone like them.

Every time I turn around, I see an incredibly fast guitar player. They're everywhere. But, there aren't that many guitar players that have their own voice, which includes the speed, technique, tone, and most important, musicality. That is a hard thing to accomplish, let alone master. smile.gif
