Yes..envelope please ..Dave Mason. Is it yoga? King said that Green was the only white blues guitarist who made his neck-hair rise. He really was the first to understand what the blues was all about. However there is one solo in rockdom that transcends them all, in my opinion, and from a guy whose own output grew sadly trashier. i dig just about EVEYBODY who played with mayall, but clapton does nothing for me. Many here have put it perfectly in that you really can’t rate one over the other as they are in two different worlds in terms of their styles of playing. Maybe by the time of Green's stint with Mayall the whole thing seemed kind of old to people? You were about 10 years older than most of the other bands’ members at the time. ― QuantumNoise (Justin Farrar), Monday, 1 May 2006 20:25 (fourteen years ago) link. Three of my favorite guitarist have been mentioned in these entries; Peter Green, Eric Clapton, and Jeremy Spencer. Would you say that gave you an advantage in terms of being viewed as a more authentic interpreter of the blues? It started out as a regular six-string guitar, but when I tried making it into a 12-string, the neck started to rebel, and I had to take the extra strings off.

Having said that, I must also comment on some people's hatred of Eric Clapton because he's too over-rated... That's not his fault, and correct me if I'm wrong, but when he broke up Cream and formed Derek & the Dominoes he was doing his best to get away from his preceived guitar-god status. "Clapton's lead playing was almost ALWAYS calculated, precise, and composed, leaving very little room for true heart and soul.". Everybody was on the same circuit, all just playing at the same clubs up and down the country. And the BBC version of "Rattlesnake Shake", "Oh Well", and the single version of "Green Manalishi" both have this angular and totally raw kind of atonal guitar feedback that totally looked fowward to the more mechanical sound that 70s heavy metal and hard rock (Judas Priest, Aerosmith, etc.) And you're right, he was so good at that slow material; those live takes of "Jumpin' at Shadows" and "Need Your Love So Bad" are strong and gripping. Thank-you!

"Albatross", "Green Manalishi", and "World In Harmony" alone outrank Clapton's entire ouevre. And, I mean, in spite of making mainly boring MOR rock the past 25-30 years. Prejudice in England wasn’t as widespread as it was in America, so when these great blues musicians came over to England and found these adoring audiences, it was something they’d never experienced before. A great song by Jeremy would have to be "I held my baby last night" from Mr. Yeah Mike Bloomfield was fan-fucking-tastic. It was my father who turned me on to Django, who managed to play faultlessly despite the loss of two fingers. "Hardly, no.

Work stops. Seems like we may need a Robbie Robertson thread? i'm not gonna say that he has no "soul", but there is something lacking there. I don't think Clapton ever opened his heart and translated it into music the way Green did on "Man of the World" and his solo LP The End of the Game, which, for me, is one of the great "out there" free blues psych jazz records (and I don't think Clapton was ever that daring). Because he was the more original player by far... On the live version of "Jumping at Shadows" (Boston Tea Party Sessions), Green does these quick clusters of notes in between verses that sound like backwards eletronic processed cat cries. much love for disraeli gears though! Peter was one of the first young guitarists to come forward saying he’d like the gig. I do think Cream produced a core of influential work, but none of it, to these ears, sounds as fresh as Green's. Disraeli Gears especially. It was a real education for all of us.

Wonderful LP. I've used this example before, but just look at the difference in playing style between Robbie Robertson and Eric Clapton in "Further On Up The Road" during The Last Waltz...
