You have to have the Layla Album on Cd and headphones to understand this. On "Why's Love Got to be so said" You can hear guitar riffs burning in the left speaker.These riffs sound exactly like duane and he plays some of the fillmore licks twoard the middle of the song. For some reason eric claptons voice only comes out of the left speaker. In the middle of the song you can hear claptons guitar come from the right speaker out of no where kinda like a ghost. Is this Clever editing to make claptons weak riffs in the song stand up to Duane's Burning Solo? I think so!!! What ever can be done for Clapton!

You are aware those "Fillmore licks" were performed before the Fillmore East shows?

Yes they are Duane's Licks before the fillmore.
I was just making note to prove that that was him playing.

The coolest thing about Duane's playing, to me, was that he could fit right into the heart and soul of a song, become one with it, and then take it to another level, pushing everyone playing around him to go there with him. It was all about playing his best and inspiring others to do the same. No doubt he lit a fire under the "Layla" seesions, and we get to keep enjoying the music all these many years later.

A reporter once asked Duane what was his contribution to the Layla album, verses EC's, in relationship to the dual guitars. All Duane said was " I play a Les Paul and he plays a strat, you go figure it out"

Delaney, it's so wonderful to have you on board here. Please feel free to share any Duane stories with us. I guarantee you will have a captive audience.

I'm about to listen to the song again, but I've always thought that Duane plays most of the lead work on that song.

Definitely him at the start, and playing all the little licks during the verses. Then he solos from 1:16 to 1:38 by himself, then at 1:39 Clapton comes in and is turned up a little louder until about 1:50 when Duane's guitar becomes dominant again. After the solos, Duane plays the licks on the verses again, then the major key solos at the end, Duane is the main guitar again. Also, I think you'll hear a few licks you'd recognize from Blue Sky in that solo, right at the end, he's doing all this descending/ascending stuff. Harsher tone, but, it's Duane playing on a I/IV vamp, so it sounds a little similar.

Clapton is a great Blue's musician though he plays all the classic licks ......... my only problem with him is he doesn't have to many originals.. Layla but he had lots of help on that. Duane taught clapton how to play the slide.

I think it's not only EC but also many other guitarist did.
There are so many players influenced from old blues guys, isn't it?

Yes, but the top blues influence for EC without a doubt would be Robert Johnson. But I wouldnt nessecarily hold it against him if you dont think he doesnt have many originals.
What about the ABB?
Statesboro Blues- Blind Willie Mctell

Trouble No More- Muddy Waters

Don't Want You Know More- Spencer Davis Group

Hoochie Coochie Man- Muddy Waters

Stormy Monday- T-Bone Walker

You Don't Love Me- Willie Cobbs

One Way Out- Sonny Boy Williamson

Done Somebody Wrong- Elmore James

Need I continue

Have you listened to the ABB Live at the Fillmore East recently? That album's got three totally original songs on it (Hot 'Lanta, Whipping Post and Liz Reed). Everything else is borrowed from the blues greats that Gregg and Duane idolized. The same applies to Layla - imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Clapton isn't my favorite, but he's written some good songs. Several on Layla, a couple for Cream (right?) and quite a number after that.

I dont think musicians can really move on anywhere without looking at the past.
