Eric Clapton Youtube Cream Crossroads

Thursday, August 28th, 2008 | Blues, Electric Guitar, Rock Guitar

Eric Clapton with Jack Bruce on Bass and Ginger Baker on guitar helped define British blues.  This recent recording of Crossroads the Robert Johnson traditional blues classic is an example of how musicians can take a musical idea and make it their own, in the same way that Hendrix redefined All Along the Watchtower.  Some may not know it but in the sixties people were calling Eric Clapton God.  In an Eastern mystical sense that is true and also if you say he’s a guitar God, yep I’ll back that one up for sure.   The control Clapton has is unbelievable, the way he can shift the dynamics of a song in a split second has always interested me; from screaming lead to sensible accompaniment without blinking.
