eric clapton

by Richard Hartness
(cartersville , ga. usa)

every one imitated him whether they admit it or not, he was the first to play a heavy blues with cream, which spawned a lot of guitarist,s doing the same, i would consider jimmy hendrix the best but i think he was into the psycodelic style to heavily also dwanye allman was as good or better in my opinion, i just think clapton was the pioneer of rock guitar. for his style consistancy and he plays cleaner than anyone ive heard. he had a fire and speed to his playing, although he could be to laid back at times, even at his worst he was better than most of the players that came along later, my top three would be hendrix , allman and clapton , he is my favorite of the three.
