Eric Johnson’s latest Mini Lesson dives into his vibrato technique

Eric Johnson has shared his latest mini guitar lesson, in aid of food banks that have been badly affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Take a look above at the lesson.

The ‘Mini Lesson’ this time dives into vibrato and stretching , and how to use the two to imbue your playing with more personality.

Johnson explains, saying ‘If I were to some kind of lick – I could also stretch into certain notes, where I take the half note before, or the full note before … and just create more of a personality.”


When he debuted the series late last month, Johnson noted the goal of the series wasn’t just to teach, but also raise some money for the hard-hit food banks during the pandemic, hoping that anybody “that gets something from these lessons would contribute a little bit to their neighborhood food bank, whatever you’ve got – a dollar, ten dollars, whatever.”

He urged USA viewers to donate to Feeding America, and worldwide viewers to donate to Action Against Hunger.
