Improve Your String Stretching and Vibrato, Eric Johnson-Style

Over the last couple of weeks, Eric Johnson has gifted us with a couple of great video lessons, focusing on how to demystify chord improvisation and how using open strings can improve your leads.

Now, EJ has shared another great lesson video, where he goes over how you can improve your string stretching and vibrato.

“I feel like those are a couple things that can add personality to what you’re doing,” Johnson explains, as he demonstrates examples of both techniques, and how best to achieve them and fit them into your own playing. 

You can follow along with Johnson's teachings in the video above. 

Just as he did with the last two lessons, Johnson is encouraging viewers to take time to donate to Feeding America or their local food bank.
