"Tones", Eric Johnson's 1986 debut album, highlights virtuoso performances by one of the most agile, engaging and innovative young guitarists in modern music. "Tones" features nine original cuts written or co-written by Johnson, including the blistering instrumentals "Victory", "Zap", "Desert Song" and "Soulful Terrain." A great starting place for those not familiar with Eric Johnson's brand of guitar magic.
