Riff Playbooks: Nick Johnston - Musical DNA Part.2

Posted — July 26, 2023

Let’s pick up right where we left off with Part 2 of "Nick Johnston's Musical DNA."

In this instalment, Nick shows us how he taught himself sweep-picked arpeggio shapes, explains some of the challenges of playing right-handed guitar as a predominantly left handed person, and finally, Nick looks at some Eric Johnston-inspired arpeggio shapes that could open up a vault of creativity for many of us - especially for those of us who haven't mastered hybrid picking!
