Editorial Reviews

Here is a unique opportunity to study with one of the great electric guitarists. Eric Johnson gives a master class in advanced picking techniques for speed and accuracy, left- and right-hand muting, blues bends, pedal steel-style bends, and unique chord voicings. There is much more too, all adding up to a truly great 90-minute electric guitar lesson from the man of whom Steve Morse said, Eric Johnson is so good it's ridiculous! Languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish

5.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating... You may want to avoid this one December 4, 2005
Verified Purchase
If you're reading this review and have checked out the DVD details you no doubtedly know who Eric Johnson is and know that he is simply the most amazing guitarist living or dead.

Good news and bad news about this instructional video. Good news: this is the entire VHS copy (with an awesome transfer of video and audio) plus they broke out the lessons in normal and 1/2 speed which you can set (with the DVD menus) to repeat over and over until you figure it out and play it smoothly. Eric also does a great job explaining in detail what he wants to teach you while showing it.

Bad news: after attempting to play what Eric Johnson plays so effortlessly you may soon realize that you're not as good as you once thought you were! May make you want to quit and take up something like origami. Or, this DVD could make you want to practice twice as much and pick up the signature Eric Johnson Strat and try to achieve his clean, pure tone and playing style.

This DVD will show you his playing styles, how he gets his tone, lots of lessons on many styles of playing, we get to watch and listen to a couple of complete original songs (not found anywhere else), and watch Eric show lots of techniques he used on Ah Via Musicom (which hadn't been released when the tape was made) and Tones.

Eric is simply friggin' amazing and for the first time, you get to sit with him and have him explain the stuff that makes him unique. I highly suggest it to people who want to improve at playing guitar (all styles) as well as Eric Johnson fans who just appreciate his ability and want to see him in a private setting with just him solo with he strat.

Every time I see Eric Johnson play, I realize how much I have yet to learn. I wouldn't be surprised if he comes out with an instructional piano video as well after seeing his live acoustic tour a couple years ago.

Thanks Eric... you are amazing. And this video shows that.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Holy Grail of Lessons November 2, 2005
I've had a VHS copy of this for years. I've been playing guitar for almost 20 years, and I STILL reference it! Eric goes through a ton of info and techniques. This is a truly must have if you want to become not only a better guitarist, but also musician. He does a great job of explaining every nuance and doing it in slow and fast motion. It is amazing for him to go from Chet Atkins to Jeff Beck to Shred in a blink of an eye...and make it all make sense. Eric is a truly versatile guitarist with deep roots tht allow him to be unique. This is not ony a great intro disc for beginners but also a must have for seasoned pros. Now quit reading this and order your own copy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD's don't wear out, thankfully! February 25, 2006
Verified Purchase
I never bought the VHS tape, but when I was notified this would be coming out on DVD, I ordered it. While I'm not an amateur, I am a professional, Eric is a guitarist's guitarist. Anyone who thinks he don't need learnin' is a fool and only famous in his own little world, small as it may be. I'm not that arrogant.

As Danny Gatton was known as the Humbler, Eric Johnson could rightly be called the Inspiration. What he does is not so much difficult as it is the epitome of finesse and transparency of technique. After viewing this, you will understand what I mean.

I already know much of what Eric teaches in this session, for that is what it is, a private session (much like you might get at GIT), with a master at the top of his craft. But there is always something to learn even after repeated viewings. I even scanned in the booklet that comes with this so I can break the lessons down and blow up the individual charts for more easy reading.

If you are serious about improving as a player, and if you're looking to be a real professional, you need to get this, if only to see what true professionalism looks and sounds like. The lessons are clear and focused. And with the booklet and the new ability to slow down the examples, you really can learn to play these things. But don't expect to sound like Eric (just as those who tried to, but could never sound like Jimi Hendrix).

You are different and so will always sound different, and that's a plus. But the techniques and all that are included here are part of a "must learn" program you need to create and follow if you want to at least make a good living playing music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Master class for INTERMEDIATE guitarist April 5, 2006
Eric's video is structured as a master class type of lesson.
If you are a beginner then this is NOT a DVD for you but
for more advanced guitarist that is a good chance to fine-tune
your technique, experiment with new technical and tonal ideas
and learn 30+ good quality runs. Eric is not a professional
instructor but his delivery is natural and inspiring - which is
good because you WILL feel at times rather frustrated watching
the speed and ease with which he delivers. Most of the examples
(30+) are numbered, printed in standard notation and tabs in the
attached booklet and present in slow-down version with same
pitch in the Special Features part of DVD. The intention is for
you to learn them and then experiment with technical/tonal
ideas that Eric discusses. In that that DVD succeeds brilliantly.
I also found that even after first watching it affected my
"touch" on the guitar - you just cannot help mimicking Eric
and you play cleaner and more relaxed passages and pick faster.
I highly recommend it to any intermediate guitarist.

Very fine playing by a very fine guitarist. Joe Bonamassa has learnt a lot from Eric Johnson in a good way. And Mr Johnson still rules in his progressive blues style!
