In this lesson, we welcome back Nick Johnston to play over an emotive track with plenty of instrumental rock and fusion vocabulary.

As Nick explains, performing over Guitar Techniques editor Jason Sidwell's specially written track, A Joy Fulfilled, was a creative challenge and the video captures a spontaneous approach without too much overthinking. The tempo is a cool 120bpm and several time signatures feature including 3/4, 4/4 and 7/4.
