Kaleidoscope of Sound: H

Bill says, "This song is intense, and is one of the best examples of how Eric Clapton played with emotion. I still think that he's one of the best blues/rock guitarists ever. His main lead follows the late Dwayne Alman's slide lead, starting at 4:14. Crank it up, if you dare!"

"Have You Ever Loved a Woman"
Derek and the Dominos

  1. Wow Annie, your man sure knows his music and you know your man. I realized that I was typing to the rhythm of the music. It had that effect on me... I wonder if it will have a lasting effect on how I drive my car this morning, I have to drive to town, hahaha.
    Have a great day.
    Hugs,
    Julia

    2. Hahaha, this old Canadian farm girl isn't ready for the rocking chair yet but sure, I like the hard blues/rock. If it gets my toes taping, it's all good.

  2. Bill,

    Eric Clapton is a multi-talented man! I dig this new-to-me bluesy rock. It's funny, I'm familiar with the artist but I don't know his mewsic as well as I should. I reckon I need to correct this by checking out more of his stuff. Thanks for sharing and have a fabulous day!

    1. Bill said, "All you need to know to find out why Clapton is one of the greatest guitar players of all time (rather than just a good guitar player), is to listen to the Derek and the Domino's Layla album. It is his absolute best work. Nothing he has done since has come close...but he didn't need to."

      It sounds like you have homework, Cathy! Hugs.

  3. Oh yes, he's one of my favorites and now I'm going to ask Alexa to play that song (she's a birthday gift from my daughter for her daddy) I get to use it as well. (Alexa from Amazon if you haven't heard of it.)

    1. Bill said, "A slide lead is when it sounds like someone stepped on the cat's tail...but much better! It is a more high pitched sound, and the notes blend together. Eric's solo lead comes after, and it is a richer, warm sound."

  9. I am glad I listened, I thought it was going to be like Bryan Adam's song of the same name-this is so much better.I have always liked Clapton, but was not familiar with this.

  10. And he is British...I would not have thought there would be any interest whatsoever for him in this style of music; but having just done some background I see there is a blues/rhythm liking in London. I haven't learned yet how he came to like it and get to the level of perfection he has gotten to.
