Ok so this is pretty simple. If you think you've got the best Eric Clapton style playing post your cover and lets see. It doesnt have to be after Clapton went solo, it can be from his days with the Yardbirds, Derek And The Dominoes, Cream, or solo. But either way it has to be a Clapton song. People can post different versions of the same song. Only rule is to post the song clip and what song it is. It has to be the whole song, solo included, no fragmented pieces of a song. So have fun and rock on.

What about clapton with the bluesbreakers?


I have a recording of all your love (claptons version) - the only problem is that the end of the song was cut off, we had problems with the recorder that night

Thats fine. I know I left out some of his other works, but yall got the point. As long as Clapton played on the song, then its ok. It just has to be Clapton.

Im not going to set a real specific deadline. Just as soon as you get a good one post it. I still havent had time to record yet, so it wouldnt be fair of me to post mine and then be the only post so I can automatically be the winner...lol.

^ That was very good! Well done.

Also, you have the same acoustic as me - Yahama FG-150. I love it.
