Cliffs of Dover

by Eric Johnson

~ We all wanted to be Eric Johnson ~

A confession – I spent waaaaay too many hours in a college dorm room trying to play this song.  I can get the main ‘chorus’ riff semi-competently, and that’s about it.  There’s just too much.  I can move my fret fingers fast enough for most of the song, and even if I could, I couldn’t pick just the right strings for it.  There’s a reason I was a rhythm guitarist.

That didn’t stop me from the delusions of grandeur of wanting to be Eric Johnson.  In the early 90s, everyone wanted to compose an instrumental that was so melodious you wanted to try to sing along with it.
