Layla - Quick Classic Riffs - Eric Clapton Guitar Lesson

Recommended Posts

One of the most iconic riffs in rock history from one of the most legendary guitarists in rock history! Is this Clapton's best riff? It's certainly up there. Also features some of rock's best slide playing from Duane Allman.

“I’m incredibly proud of that song. To have ownership of something that powerful is something I’ll never be able to get used to,” Eric Clapton said of Layla in 1988. “It still knocks me out when I play it.”

While checking out your link, I came across this: https://youtu.be/BR8WCy_0jtA

The sound of one guitar playing vs. multi-tracking … 6:16 to 7:14 is a great example. Separately the parts sound feeble. Together they sound huge.

You consider the slide guitar in Layla to be some of the best rock slide guitar ever? Seriously - can you point to ONE part of that slide guitar track that doesn't sound like he just started learning slide?

He's a very good slide player, but I consider that his worst work. I suspect alcohol was involved.

It would be really good if you actually engaged in conversation with other members, rather than just trying to drive traffic to your Youtube channel BTW.

My thoughts exactly.  Most of it sounds like off key wankery to me.

Perhaps I should change it to "some of rock's most famous slide playing"!

Eric to Duane: OMG, I am so in love with George's wife. I need it to sound like my heart's getting torn out of my chest.

Duane (putting slide on his finger): Oh Jesus, this is just getting embarrassing. Roll tape, let's just get this over with!
