From Grady:

"This is our Eric Johnson episode, and we really wanted to make this the definitive investigation of as many of his signature innovations as possible. There's a lot pickslanting in here, from pentatonic and arpeggio ideas, to the infamous Hot Licks “bounce technique” scene that pretty much baffled everyone 25 years ago."
