Clapton is the best guitarist ever. He has a great veriety and his best song happens to be Old Love or Tears In Heaven. He's a role model that has overcome drug addiction, death of a loved one and alchaholism and is still able to be the best.

As a songwriter, I see Eric Clapton as really good. As a guitarist, on a technical level, well, I don't see what's so special about him. I'm sorry, but imo Page is better, on a technical level.

Eric Clapton was Prob The top 3 Greatest guitar players on everyones list back then. But what amazes me the most is He was jealous of Hednrix when he first saw hendrix play. He Made Hendrix A legend. He Heard hendrix play at a pub and said i can;t even do that. thats how hendrix came ot be. Thank God for Eric Clapton without him Hendrix would have been unkwon... and when Hendrix died... at the funearl Eric clapton was Known to Scream out liud " Why Jimi, Why Not Me? God Please Not Jimi!!" The Words Of a True, Brave, and Loyal Guitarist.... Even tho Thanks to him lending out his Helicopter Stevie Ray Vaughn is dead.

If you asked most guitarist out there who they thought was the best guitarest ever they would probably say:

1. Eric Clapton
2. Jimmy Hendrix

Clapton plays beautifully, he isn't sloppy at all, a very precise guitarist. He is definitely the best guitarist I know


No disrespect to Clapton, he's behind Jimi Hendrix, actually, in almost everyone's view. Most people I've talked to think Hendrix is the best, and then they put David Gilmour or Clapton. However, Clapton is still to me number two, but Hendrix is my unanimous number one, there's no discussion in my mind who's the best. Clapton was competitive, and oddly enough, they played about the same time, the Hendrix Experience from 1966-1970 and Clapton's Cream from 1966-1969, but of course, we all know how the Experience went.

People, say he's overrated and not a great guitarist, but he is the greatest soulful blues guitarist along with muddy waters and bb king. That's what he was aiming for, and you dont need to be mr fancy tricks or super speedy to be a great guitarist. You need soul and feeling, and you've really got to feel connected to the guitar. He did that in a big way.

How can you not be a musician and not know about Eric Clapton...

What Do You Need To Learn To Play Blues Guitar?

In order to learn to play blues guitar, there are a few things you need. First of all, you need to own an electric or acoustic guitar with strings made from other than nylon in standard tuning. You also need to know how to read tablature, as well as have some basic guitar knowledge and know how to play a few chords.

You also need some Eric Clapton CDs with blues classics, such as Blues Breakers, From the Cradle or Eric Clapton Unplugged and a good CD player with an auto-repeat shuffle. There's also a plug-in for Winamp you can use to slow down music. A small chord book you can find in any guitar shop is also handy. But most importantly, in order to learn to play blues guitar, you need some good ears.
