Good job as usual Sal. The CW does sound nice ... a good strummer I'd say. I didn't know this song as a Clapton thing but I can't remember who's version I know. I'm thinking Pure Prairie League.?. Any Board members know who else covered this song?

 

 

 

 

EDIT: I found it ....... I first heard it from an obscure band named "Cowboy". They were part of the Capricorn Records artist .... think Allman Brothers.... Think early 70s and Macon, Georgia. . In fact Greg played slide Dobro on the version I know. The song was written by Scott Boyer. Check out this version:

 

Check out the group. It's good early country/rock.

Just hyper fine there, Sal - One of my all time favourites and you definitely carry it home. Such a brilliant and soulful song.

 

Regarding the guitar, I'm glad you made the switch. It sounds crisper to these ears, , , and more real -

in fact extremely close to a bulls eye contemporary square G after my book.

 

What a nice way to end the weekend.

 

White wine in the glass ~ Cheers

 

 

 

How do U experience the difference yourself, , ?

Thanks fellas....jalex, Avery...

JDD, I think all these guys palled around in Florida and Georgia. I think Allman plays slide on the Clapton track too. I know Eric is known for his blues, his Martin 000-28... But his country rock vibe was special.

 

 

Buc, I have Curt Mangan PB lights on the guitar. It's the first time I have tried these strings on anything. They seem an awful lot like EJ16s, which is not a bad thing.

 

EM7... This guitar defies logic for me. "It shouldn't sound good" because of the adjustable saddle, but I love it. The bone saddle delivers more low end than the TUSQ. I sanded it a tad, and I have the action right where I want it. I think next string change I will try Sunbeams, or maybe this set of Santa Cruz strings I bought. Anyways, thanks for the compliment, and enjoy the wine.

Sal, Indeed they did. In fact Clapton famously brought in D. Allman to play on the Derick and Dominos project ...... resulting in a golden product. If ya'll don't know "Layla and Other Love Songs", get it. It is an important part of Rock 'n Roll history.

When you're "pitchy" you're still better than most.....
