I've seen him do this number on the Crossroads CD but using a strat. IMO this clip with the 335 has a way more killer tone to it. He knows his blues guitars though, a strat or 335 will do it nicely. As much as I like a strat when it comes to blues the 335 is number one for me.... As for the clip... Clapton in one of his finer moments..

Great clip, sounds more than a bit like BB at the start, then morphs into typical EC by the middle. I wish the audio was better on you tube, you lose so much of the subtlety.

I love his Gibson tones on From the Cradle, too.

Love From the Cradle. Working on learning some of the tunes.

Oh yeah...that is the Clapton I love:bow:. I have that show on DVD. It was filmed by Martin Scorcese. It is called "Nothing But The Blues". Very hard to find, but well worth the effort!

I prefer Freddies singing, but they both sound great on the gtr

EC owes a lot to Freddie for sure...he copped some of his solos ( crosscut saw = strange brew ) out of respect, though, I'd imagine
