Hey,
I was just wondering, what scales does Eric Johnson use for the brunt of his songs?
I have a sense that he uses the blues scale sometimes, but i'm not sure about his other stuff.

Thanks!

Eric Johnson does not use scales, he is beyond that. Just kidding, but seriously, I have no clue.
Be cool.

He's a famous user of the blues scale, almost exclusively.

He'll add in a few extraneous tones like the natural 6th, but very rarely.

He uses sheer pentatonics, alot, he just arranges them in ways that many other people wouldn't even consider to give himself a unique sound.

Yeah he loves the pentatonic, thats pretty much his entire sound.

He likes to use 3nps variations of it and wide intervals too that give it unique sound
