    Apart from this one, where he talks about what he's playing, his approach, some licks, anything playing guitar-centric?

    The best interview Clapton ever gave. "You want me to break my guitar?".

    I posted a thread before about this video. In it, a couple of members suggested he was using a JTM45, but it sounds like there's more to that or it's another amp altogether.

    It sounds very nice and crisp with a singing stinging midrange.

    Any ideas?

    100 watt superlead imho, everything on ten. to me his tone in cream's live recordings is the standard to which all others are judged.

    JTM45 with a Dallas Rangemaster?


    I'd love to see more interviews but preferably with Mr. Clapton non-stoned.

    Likewise.

    I've watched this video so many times over the years and I'm left wanting more.

    To answer your question there are a couple of scenes during the BBC's "Classic Albums" series on the making of Disraeli Gears where EC demonstrates how he played some of the riffs, also on the interviews in the DVD part of the Me & Mr Johnson recordings he shows how he approached RJ's playing. There are probably more out there if you search You Tube eg.
