    This showed up in my "recommended for you" YouTube home page today. Just felt like sharing.

    Of course, I could listen to Eric play almost anything and seeing him noodle about enjoying himself is pretty cool. His clean tone really is other worldly.

    That clip was "borrowed" and heavily edited.
    If you want to see the authentic full length video, look up Eric Johnson Saucer Studios on Youtube.

    EJs clean tone is legendary. To me at least. I could listen to him noodle all day.

    Ya know @Dadocaster, with a bit of massaging and persuasion, the 11R will do a very respectable EJ clean tone.

    Hmmm, how do I know this? :whistling:

    I bought a Catalinbread Echorec to get close to that tone! I'm close but I just need EJ's fingers now and I'll have it!

    Someone has to unplug that chorus pedal. I just want to hear guitar and amp!

    It sounds amazing. Passages like that make me think that we're often trying too hard...there's no "flash" in what he did there...but its crammed full of goodness.
