So how did Warren and Clapton jive? Did their styles compliment one another? Guitar and vocally? I don't believe they've ever shared the stage together, correct?

I was riveted to my computer monitor all evening. I didn't get too involved in the Moogis chat. I kept going full screen. God, what a wonderful show!!! UNREAL

Same here, Dave - I signed on to chat for about 30 seconds during intermission - too busy.....I was RIVETED as well...laid in bed, had my laptop hooked up to the BOSE speakers, full screen, and was in musical nirvana....just doesn't get any better.

Didn't even cry that I had sold my ticket last minute....made the right decision - just felt like crapola....thank you MUSIC GODS and BUTCHY for MOOGIS!

I have been watching on Moogis and have thoroughly enjoyed just about everything so far. This latest show I feel was the best not just because of Clapton but because he was the only guest and I got to see some consistent tune to tune playing of just the band. Don't Keep Me Wondering was just stellar with a growling Gregg, swirling organ and killer Derek on slide. The Whipping Post to end the first set did not hurt either. When Gregg came out alone to do Oncoming Traffic it gave me this feeling that Warren and Derek were still working on arrangements with Clapton. Anyone who likes Gregg's voice (who doesn't) needs to hear him sing this song. The man has a voice for the ages. They really made us wait for Clapton as they went into two more songs, including a killer Schoolgirl which I am sure EC was viewing and listening to from the sidelines, just chomping at the bit to get out there. Everything went great with EC, loved that Gregg and EC took vocal turns on this song, although he looked like he(EC) had to find his way on Dreams, but the solo was not bad. Little Wing was much better, and of course, Anyday to close the set. We all know what the encore was. I am just hoping the last weekend they have someone or something special, since I will be switching from Moogis to the loge!

First impression was OK.
Need to watch this again. I thought on "Why Does Love ..." Warren kind of
played the same solo Eric played, right after him.

Didn't think Warren meshed well on the "Little Wing" vocals.
Eric was smoother and Warren almost sounded like he was shouting,
however, he did seem lower in the vocal mix.

Like I said, need to watch again.

But it was mostly all Derek and EC who play very well together.

EC on "Dreams" was funny to watch. I think it was "Dreams" where
Eric starts to solo and his pick flew out of his hand so he fingerpicked
his solo, which was still, way cool.

I'd like to second Chain's question. I'm sure it was a highlight for Warren. Did Warren get to fire off a few solos while Clapton was there? And if he did wha did Clapton think of them?

Lonoman we must have poated at the same time. Three guitars regardless of who was playing is a bit much ... at least in this context.

But you had three distinctive guitar tones....EC on Strat, Warren on 335 and Derek on SG. Each guitar had it's own tone and no one was stepping on anyone's toes. The mixing on Moogis made it possible to hear each little lick being played by each guitarist and there was great separation and distinction. If it would have been the three of them all riffing away and trying to outdo each other, I'd complain. But I thought all three were very complimentary to each other on stage. I have NO complaints at all about last night's show. It was perfect, IMO.

I'm fortunate to have been invited to a Moogis party tomorrow night and am looking forward to seeing how it works. The host, SmatterMonnat, has promised to show a few highlights from the run thus far before tomorrow nights show actually begins. I'm guessing a tune or two from last nights show will get a few votes. I'm wondering if Dicky will make an appearance tomorrow. I can't tell you all how excited I am to see Moogis in all its glory as Smatter has a 52" plasma with a good quality surround sound system pumping the audio. We Americans, we're so spoiled. Thanks, Butch, for making my weekend a special one.

Totally clicked in every possible way. Warren was so in awe after the second set he just pointed and couldn't even speak. I thought Warren was just monstrous. His playing perfectly complemented the song as it always does. Vocally he was great. He is a great harmonizer. His voice lacks the rawness of Bobby Whitlock and was a bit more polished but to my ears he sounded great as did Eric by the way, as good as I have ever heard him. I look forward to hearing it on Moogis this weekend.

Did you ever hear Bobby Whitlock's backup vocals on Little Wing? Smooth they were not, raw and passionate and emotional they were. If anything I felt Warren was too smooth.

I broke down, researched, picked up a video cable, and bought Moogis around 6pm yesterday evening to watch the EC sit-in. It was a GREAT show.
I can definitely understand people thinking some things like vox and guitars didn't mesh at times. I think it depends on where you saw the show. The Moogis sound is a really great soundboard feed, almost too perfect. Anything even close to a mistake is glaringly obvious. As much as I loved my living room experience last night, I know the live sound mix would have been a much more natural representation of the concert experience. Please don't get me wrong, even if I only watched that one show, Moogis is entirely worth the cost. But that show must have been AMAZING to see AT The Beacon. Glad I could watch from my couch none the less. The interplay between Eric, Derek, Warren, and Oteil at the end of WDLGTBSS was just beautiful. So much going on, yet nobody was stepping on anything.
LONG LIVE THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND and Moogis!

Thanks BD. Three guitars are a bit much, but I forgot who the three were. Wonder if warren had a chance to ... you know bond with EC a bit ... you know ... maybe invite him to jam sometime ... oh around Christmas ...

So after the show we went to a local Italian place we know away a bit from the beacon crowd. I was saying did you see eric grinning when warren was ripping leads? he should be invited to the crossroads next time around. I then turn around and Eric is sitting ina booth with like 8 people. My voice carries so I know he heard that. Anyway point is, Warren smoked and Eric payed attention

I just watched the second set again and it was every bit as awesome as I thought it was the first time. Clapton came out and tore it up. His solo in WDLHTBSS IS SMOKING!!! That was definitely the Golden Ticket set of the run so far. Tonight should be another one. I am very envious but happy for those attending. Thank God for Moogis!!!! Actually Thank Butch!!!!!

Three guitars sounded good to me. Watch the video of "Little Wing" above, Warren takes the first solo and kills it, and you can tell that Eric is more than aware of it. Then, Derek solos and then Eric, and all three solos are awesome.

Then I watched the video from the crowd of "Dreams" below, and while the video goes all to hell about midway, you can a good taste of Eric's solo in the first five minutes and it is sweet. There is a hell of a lot of guitarists in this world that couldn't produce a solo like that if their life depended on it. I wish I could remember the names of the Clapton bashers on here. Below;
