Eh, the 60s were still early days for the guitar. Fender still get away with mixing up "vibrato" and "tremolo" to the extent that we now commonly refer to a vibrato bar as a trem, so cut him some slack.
There was some great playing in that vid. Clapton before he became incredibly boring.

regardless of whether he knew what bass and treble were, he's still got a nice tone

it honestly really doesn't matter what kind of crap guitarists say about their tone as long as the sound that comes out of their guitar is good.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Wish that could be viewed in the states

it's just a kinda boring interview with eric clapton talking about what a wah pedal does and what the vol/tone controls on his guitar do. he just says that the tone knobs roll off bass, probably by mistake. although there's some good playing, too.

Yeah, I wasn't whining or anything. Clearly he got quite, erm, mixed up.
Then again...
He IS God.
Or rather, was.

wasn't he an absolute crackhead at the time the video was filmed? i heard he had some serious drug problems in the mid/late '60s (along with everyone else!)

I think he is baked in this video. Or nervous to be on camera in such a candid and frontal manner?

Pretty much. Even despite what other things he was taking, you'll notice the recently lit spliff stuck to the headstock of his guitar.

I have the rest of that interview on DVD, along with the respective interviews with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker. Ginger Baker in particular is clearly completely off his head. He still manages to play like a mother****er but he can't complete a coherent sentence.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

What's this DVD?
And for someone who's high Clapton seemed pretty coherent there.

There are two videos I thought this was. Either Crossroads at the Cream farewell concert, or that video with him with the Fool SG in an interview.

If it was Crossroads; It was only a slight bit, and after that he make sup for it with the second solo. Plus he can get away with it since in the early 1970's, if I'm right, Ritchie Blackmore's Marshalls would short out on him(though he modded them to add I think 50, or maybe it was 100? Either way he added some wattage onto it, so that's likely to blame). Even today amps still screw up. I applaud him for not doing what many modern guitarists would've done(stop playing) and kept going.

If it was the interview thing; I haven't watched it in too long and it's not available in America now(D=), so no comment.
