    ...Gently Weeps

    One of my favorite all time jam songs.

    I really love Jeff Healey's version of this song.

    Not a huge Clapton fan, but listening to his guitar part in isolation is pretty impressive.

    Here's the Healey...



    I'm very partial to the Michael Hedges version....

    That version is ok but the studio one he does rips hard.

    I've always loved Clapton's playing, probably as I'm of that "certain age" when coming up it was all about the guy. And you're right, this is pretty impressive, with the part solo'd on the board.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Don't get me wrong.... I know he's great.... Just that for whatever reason, post Cream (post Bluesbreakers for me actually) there just isn't much that I'd listen to just for the joy of listenting to it. Listent to it for the artistry, sure..... In any case, I probably missed out on the real Clapton by a decade or two, but listening to this track in isolation just reinforces how good the guy is.

    Got tickets to see him in Madison. I am prepared to have my mind blown.

    Both cool songs but I do prefer Healey's studio version.

    Speaking of George and Uke's... This version of 'Something' from Concert For George is fantastic!
