Im looking for some great live solos by Clapton... Put some links!
Sad to think how boring he's been for so long, when he used to be able to play like that.
I think he peaked with E.C. Was Here. Some great stuff on that album.
"Put some links!"
Would you like us to click on them and listen to them as well as look them up for you?
How about something more recent?
It's not that Clapton CAN'T play amazingly now, it's much moreso that he's not often put in a situation where he has to rise above "professional".
Long but good....
I'm not a big Clapton buff (I like Layla...), but our teache played this in my music appreciation class my freshman year. I love the intro!
I'm thinkin' Eric was 20 or 21 years old here.
And somethng more recent...Eric nails that whole Elmore James vibe with this. Don't P-90's sound great in the right context?
as televised wrote ^ -spoonful-wheels of fire
the classic!! as close as you can get a trio to becoming one moving force...
this track was huge inspiration for leslie west, van halen, etc
one of the killers of all time..as good as ec is on it, jack bruce on bass and vocal! amazing
look no further
I love the I shot the sherriff off the live in the 70's box set
I always like this performance and solo.....signature Clapton tone and feel to me. The keyboard solo at the end may be better than the guitar solo though . One More Car, One More Rider is my favorite Clapton live album.
Derek and the Dominos, "Why Does Love Got to be So Sad?" Live at the Fillmore. Solo starts at 3:25, though there are several solos throughout.
"Don't Think Twice It's All Right" from the Bob Dylan tribute in 1992. Blew me away first time I heard it.
Check out the live version of Double Trouble from Just One Night album. Gives me goosebumps its that good
IMO, one of the best "modern era" Clapton solos. Starts around 4:50-
Indeed a great tone and performance!
At the risk of picking a nit, I think the pickups are Alnico Vs with dog-ear mounts.
I only mention it 'cause I love those pickups, and I don't love P90s so much.
They were Gibsons top of the line pickups until the humbucker reared it's head in 57.
I've always loved the lengthy solo at the end of Cocaine (LIVE).
Oh wait.... that's Albert
I know most people won't agree with this, but I really enjoy Eric's "lazy feel"... his playing throughout "unplugged" was great, and although it's not a live track - that solo (and theme line) in Lay Down Sally is loaded with nuance.
I'll second that emotion! Great all around recording. Some of his best blues work were with members of the dominos on that and a variety of other tours.
