Eric Clapton’s Blues

Not much may be said without repetition, other than maybe to propose devotees that were idolizing that he’s really not a demigod, but, finally, only an only fallible human being, a mere person guitar player-although a great one. Despise him or love him, Eric Clapton is the single most noticeable proponent of the old time blues who has turned more people onto the music as well as the conventional blues than anyone on earth and was. When they were spoken by Clapton all listened. Many began their investigation to follow the path of the early blues musicians who initially performed the music being covered by the large rockstars.

While Clapton plays the gamut of rock, pop and reggae music, and also would not be classified as a conventional blues musician, he’s kept his love for Robert Johnson particularly and for the genre. Clapton, an ardent blues performer, has become the front PR man for the country blues.

Not coincidentally, a few of the very most significant music in the music genre continues to be recorded by Clapton. His acoustic guitar covers of the standard blues have reached millions more listeners than almost any other blues record. Truly, a claim could be made the acoustic guitar blues wouldn’t be as popular as it’s now, were it not for this important star’s emphatic progress of the genre.

Moreover, one listen to his duet version of “Mean Old World” by Little Walter, as recorded through the Layla Sessions with Duane Allman, should quiet any critics. Eric Clapton is not as unimportant to the acoustic guitar blues as any bluesman.
