Eric Johnson – The Fine Art of Guitar
Sep 10 2014
Here is the follow-up to Eric’s classic instructional DVD Total Electric Guitar. Building on that DVD, Eric goes on to show you: tempered tuning, pick and finger techniques, his famous ‘Koto’ technique, slide guitar, volume swells for lead and slide plus a host of technical tips including multi-amp setup, action and string tension adjustments. The DVD also includes several exclusive live performances by Eric playing with his band! It all adds up to the ultimate electric guitar lesson! You’ll never miss a note with these unique features: see the music and the tablature on screen as it’s being played; all right- and left-hand techniques are shown in close-up and with helpful split-screen effects to make learning easy; slow-motion segments with standard pitch sound; artist biography; selected discography; suggested listening.
This is certainly a MUST HAVE for all advanced Lead Guitar Players. This goes into a lot of detail about Eric’s personal style. In Eric’s first video he showed styles he liked to use in his playing etc.. however this IS HIS style. Tons of examples on his way of doing arpeggios, string skipping, he explains his tone, how he approaches
song writing etc… The DVD comes with a booklet of examples. In addition, it provides you to slow-down every expercise by 50% and still keep the pitch. Great for exercise. “Total Electric Guitar” has the same cool features.
In Total Electric Guitar, Eric goes over his different influences and how they influenced his style. In this, he goes over the subtler aspects of his style. Eric briefly goes over technique, this time going into more detail about dampening, string stretching (including koto technique and volume swells) and vibrato. He also gives tips for making your playing more dynamic and expressive, and thinking creatively. Eric gives a brief overview of his slide and acoustic playing. Throughout the dvd, he gives performances of his songs from “Venus Isle”. This is a great addition to his first dvd, but this dvd emphasizes more of the embellishments that he adds to his playing. I suggest that you first go through Total Electric Guitar, and if you want to go deeper into his style, then buy this.
