How To Get Eric Johnson Guitar Sound With S-GEAR

Eric Johnson, guitar virtuoso, is known for his unique tone and impressive chops.

His signal chain isn’t overly complicated. His tone is on the clean side using mostly his Fender Strat, a tube screamer and his fingers.

Don’t jump the gun, I know, on a lot of days he uses a bunch of pedals.

In this preset I tried to shape the tone to get Eric Johnson’s sound on Cliffs Of Dover.

I usually use a Strat type guitar and use position 4 (bridge and middle) for the pickups.
