Eric Johnson Amp Settings with Tubescreamer

Eric Johnson might be a lesser known version of Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, but he's still one of the best, and anyone with the DVD of him at G3 knows that to be certain.

Johnson has used a Tube Screamer distortion or Fuzz pedal periodically and interchangeably, thus it's the best way to replicate his sound in terms of distortion.

Couple that with your amp and here's how you can get the closest to his tone.
