Happy Birthday to Eric "Slowhand" Clapton!(3/30) The first 3 time inductee into The Rock-N-Roll Hall Of Fame, started out in The Yardbirds, then moved on to form Cream, Blind Faith, and Derek And The Dominos before starting an amazingly successful solo career. Clapton has explored many different genres of music but has always kept the blues close to his heart. The video below is from the Cream's "Farewell Concert Film" from 1968. Clapton patiently explains the workings of his guitar and then demonstrates his skills. Budding guitarists take note.
