See Eric Johnson's latest mini guitar lessons on picking, the pentatonic scale and using space in your playing

True to his word, guitar virtuoso Eric Johnson has been diligently filming more of his weekly guitar mini lessons  in an appeal for charity donations to food banks ( in the US), and these tutorials are proving to be wonderfully insightful windows into his unique approaches.

The latest installments cover picking technique, the pentatonic scale (above) and using space in your playing. So tips on three areas all players can benefit from!
