There's another guy I saw a little time back who played an acoustic in a similarly, perhaps even more amazing fashion. In fact better I think than the guy I just posted, it was truly amazing. Real jaw dropping stuff....like how the f*ck do you do that with an acoustic guitar........

I 've seen a few local players here who are JAzz players and these guys will play a descending bass line with an ascending lead line, again, clever stuff.

Compared to Clapton, these guys take technique to a whole different level, and on pure technique, any of these guys wipe the floor with players like Clapton and Page, even his Holy-ness Pope Blackmore!!

 Funny thing about Blackmore and Clapton, because he was given his very first Strat from EC



According to the new RB biography, Clapton gave the Strat (the one seen in the inner sleeve of BOT, sporting a Telecaster neck) to one of his roadies, who in turn sold the guitar to RB.
The story is told by Ian Hansford. Bloom doesn't relate to whether the story is from a new interview or an old one. Clapton's roadie's name is Mick Turner. Bloom also quotes RB, the one which I think was already in the Charlesworth book ("it had a bowed neck", "it had a great sound with the wah-wah" etc).




 I remember reading at least two different versions of how Blackmore acquired the Strat from Clapton, and here's the first one:

GP: "You changed to a Fender Stratocaster for the third album, Deep Purple In Concert?

Ritchie Blackmore: "I think it was, yeah. In fact the Strat I used belonged to Eric Clapton. I used it and liked the sound of it; it was very sharp but impossible to play The neck was so bowed, it was really bad. He just had one kicking around the house, and I picked it up and he said, "Take it away." It had a great sound for a wah-wah pedal because it was so sharp, but it was very difficult to play because it was so bowed. I thought it was an interesting guitar at the time, even though all the octaves were out." - Ritchie Blackmore in Guitar Player magazine,1978.

 In the version of the story above, Blackmore definitely gives the impression he was personally given the guitar by Clapton...there's another quote bouncing around here in the back page where Blackmore gives an almost totally different version - ah well, contradicting himself (whether intentionally or not, I
've no idea) is certainly nothing new with Ritchie Blackmore...and not that it's of signifigant importance in an overall cosmic sense, either. emoticon

Coverage in the hands of the distortible, has always had a negative effect, and they get paid for it... it really is an art destroyer.
