Eric Johnson is a Grammy award winning, platinum selling Texas guitar virtuoso. Guitar Player magazine has called him "one of the most respected guitarists on the planet” - he is world renowned for his cascading, melodic soloing, masterful compositions and his spectacular guitar tones.
He has performed with everyone from Carol King and Stevie Ray Vaughan to Steve Vai and Joe Satriana, as part the celebrated ‘G3’.
Eric’s HotLicks video ‘Total Electric Guitar’ is an institution to a generation of guitar players. His unique voice on the instrument was inspired by Wes Montgomery, Jimi Hendrix, Jerry Reed and Jeff Beck.
Eric has been a great inspiration to me over years and of my biggest influences. We first met in 2012 and he has become a great friend and I consider him to be one of the nicest, most genuine people I know.
