Synth City: 10 Classic Guitar Synth Songs
Here are 10 classic tracks that demonstrate the many voices of guitar synths.
06. "Venus Isle," Eric Johnson, Venus Isle, 1996
Texas guitar great Eric Johnson started dabbling with guitar synths in the late '80s, but he didn't seriously record with them until his 1996 album, Venus Isle, an album full of what he calls "extra textures."
Johnson uses a Roland guitar synth to create those textures on several tracks, including "Mountain," "Battle We Have Won," "When the Sun Meets the Sky" and the title track, which you can check out below.
