Eric Johnson Octave Riff

By Eric Hufschmid


Hey everybody,

Eric Johnson is one of the greatest guitar players of all time and often creates these flowing, waterfall sounding textures from taking normal scales and passages but playing them in ways nobody else has. One of his favorite tricks is to go crazy with the octave interval. We’ll show you how the master might use them.

Enjoy the riff guys!


We’ve already learned the octave but not in the context of it being an interval. Learn and master this riff and try getting creative with octaves.
