Andy Aledort continues this fine series, with Volume 5. Eric Clapton is featured here. Songs from Cream and material into the early 70’s. Some background info on Eric opens the program.
As Andy suggests, it is important for any bluesman or blues-rocker, to closely study Clapton’s playing. Comparisons to BB King, demonstrate his influence and subsequent mods to rock those licks.
These are general techniques and moves, in the classic EC style. They are not, transcribed note for note guitar lessons. This is a good alternative. The breakdowns offer a working knowledge, of how to use the licks. Also, why it works.
Viewers will see the genius of the young Clapton. Remarkable, as he was a pioneer in what later became the Blues-Rock genre. Back then. this was Rock!
Badge, Crossroads, Strange Brew, Have You Ever Loved A Woman and Further Up the Road. These are the 5 tracks the are on this release.
The usual performance and breakdown combinations are effective. Andy is extremely knowledgeable. His relaxed class contains clear presentation. He is an excellent guitarist.
Detailed text that explains scales on each song. The Interactive Player is the older version on my copy. Loaded with many useful extras. Jam tracks, charts, tab and more!
All in all, this is an essential overview of prime period Eric Clapton. Thorough presentation by the master, Andy Aledort.
