This particular lick, and the style I've developed, is the result of my obsession with Eric Johnson. When I first saw him play, I was so captivated and blown away that I set about learning everything and anything I could of his work. Until I discovered his playing, my influences where SRV, Hendrix, Beck and Clapton. My love of the blues-rock guitar style and tonality is something I can't shake.
