Just want to know what everyones opinion on him is. Personally, I agree with the "Clapton is God." But I have a guitarist friend who listens to everything and says that he hates clapton. I was humming wonderful tonight and he smacked me. He says everyting clapton plays sounds the same. Opinions?

Then he's silly, most of Claptons song are far different, from reggae, to blues to rock. He's probably saying he doesn't like him because he wants to be "different".

Clapton is great guitar player but not only that is is a great songwriter, I think anyone who is serious about guitar likes clapton, or at least has some respect for his playing. I don't listen to claptons stuff all the time but it is really great to sit and relax and listen too.

I definitely don't think Clapton's songs sound similar at all. He has a variety of different styles all the way from raeggae to blues to classical. Not many guitarist are talented and skilled enough to play such a broad range of styles, and to do so well.

Meh! Ypur friend is a bit of a dip**** then. 'Cos Clapton numbers don't sound the same; there is so much variation that I believe your friend has some form of mental disease.

+1, and I would bet that at least a few of his favorite guitarists have cited clapton as an influence.

well, if he knew you were humming Wonderful Tonight, his whole point is out the window.


and besides, Cream doesnt sound at all like the Yardbirds which doesnt sound like Derek & the Dominos. i could go on.

Clapton's songs don't sound the same. And if he smacked you for humming a song you like then he's obviously a dick and a control freak.

Man, thats messed up. Clapton has so many different styles. Tell him to listen to 'Wonderful Tonight' then listen to 'Hey Hey' then listen to 'Spoonful'. I could go on forever. He covers a way too many genres and styles.

ec definitely is one of the most diverse guitar players ever. while i think that his newer and more commercial work is nothing compared to his pioneer work in the 60s he from time to time makes a comeback to the blues-for example with the record from the cradle or the robert johnson tribute-.
when ec lets his blues hang out or when his back with good ole rock then he smokes but the commercial stuff like his terrible last record or the boring road to escondido just doesnt get it for me.

Someone probably said alredy that he's british


...and if you consider critizicing something "unamerican", and you leave it alone even though it's not ok, you'll never improve.

Finally, it also seems really dum to me that you think some bands are good just because they're really known..maybe someone doesn't like iron maiden. It's called taste :peace:

most us us dont care about what other people listen to, but saying everything clapton plays sounds the same is just stupid
