    Hi!
    Remember that 1990 Total electric guitar video by Eric Johnson?
    I think it was produced by Arlen Roth for Hotlicks.
    I always thought it had the best electric guitar intro...

    Gear used: Fender Squier JV 1983, Origin Effects Cali79, Barber Electronics D Drive, Xotic RC Booster Catalinbread Effects Belle Epoch Strymon FLINT Recorded direct using Strymon Iridium.

    Great video, also yours. But, I learned how to improve my picking hand way back then.

    That video was a huge influence - had it on VHS and later got it on DVD - his technique and tone were at their apex back then IMO.

    Nice job! Instead of posting here since 2015 you've been practicing licks. Therein lay the real lesson. Again, wonderful playing! So many times I've thought that playing would be better than reading about playing.

    Great playing Asa; nice tone from the Squier too.
    I had one years ago, great tone but couldn't keep it in tune!

    Thanks!
    That's too bad as they're great.
    The SSt30 have lower tuning pegs but the SST 50 and above have the kluson pegs which are great.
