An incredible six-hour exploration of the ethereal guitar genius of Eric Johnson.

SKU: cascade-seminar Category:

The Cascade Seminar explores the ethereal guitar genius of Eric Johnson, unlocking the magic of Eric’s downward pickslanting system, the source of his legendary precision for blazing pentatonic lines.

We completely demystify EJ’s flowing multi-position pentatonic wizardry, glittering harmonic arpeggios, use of downward pickslanting, sweeping, the “bounce technique”, and more. We go frame by frame through his landmark 1988 Austin City Limits Performance to analyze numerous signature phrases, and take a special look at his two classic instructional videos, Total Electric Guitar and The Fine Art of Guitar.

Through an exhaustive examination of historical footage, we deconstruct all the classic elements of the EJ sound: cascading multi-position phrases, arpeggios, right-hand harmonics, mixolydian lines, the “bounce technique”, and more.

The Cascade Seminar is an incredible, 6-hour investigation that includes a massive 35 video chapters, and over 100 slow motion clips with tablature.

Here's an overview of what's included with the download. For more detail, check out the platform page!
