Just in case you want a different take!
Real interesting take..........It was a Eric Clapton Cream era type tone with Eric Johnsons stylings. I like to hear different guitarists takes on things
Nice to see EJ give a nod to EC in parts of this song... shows respect.
Very good at capturing the cream tone, My hats off on this one, he's nailing the vibe,
Still like RF's take better tHANX FOR POSTING...
Man I was sitting back ready to jam...and it was really weak for EJ....It was like, give that guy his strat back ! This experiment isn't working ! (I do love EJ's playing by the way)
Too much fuzz there I think, but I love EJ's tone when he plays his 335. Check this out. EJ is at around 1:50
Wait....is that Scott Peterson on bass AND drums...at the same time? Cool. Nice bit of cloning!
Couldn't really see the backline very well, just saw a Twin. Was there a Marshall back there?
Perhaps EJ should call Tag for some tone tips on this tune...
Give me Eric Johnson any day over Robben Ford.
Interesting take. Prefer where Ford took the song though.
In-ear protection? Screw that.
Maybe EJ isn't shooting for RF tone, maybe instead paying tribute to the Cream, of which ANY RF version fails
Just wish he'd nod toward JB's vocals.
Has anyone actually heard Cream do this song?
I'm trying to imagine the look on his face if EJ ever saw this thread. "Hey Eric, come check this out. There's a bunch of guys on TGP that want to help you with your tone." ROFL. Now I've seen everything.
Just for fun--The next time you're jamming with another guitar player, try one guy doing the RF riff and the other doing the EC riff. It's kind of a gas.
What show/DVD is this from?
yeah, i didn't like the tone much at all, but i love the playing. i thin kthat kind of shows how hard it is to get the woman tone. i know a lot of guys that just turn up their amps and roll the tone back, and their tone just sounds like they turned their amp up and roll off the tone. come to think of it, everyone that i've heard come close to clapton's woman tone do a number of things to get there. maybe i like ej's strat tone too much to appreciate this particular tone.
Actually, I thought it fit the song, and Johnson's own style, more or less perfectly. To each his own, I guess.
I think it fairly well represents his tone as of late. And it is hard to hear. I saw him in San Antonio recently. Performance was awesome, tone was much like this. Extremely muffled and weak. No cut whatsoever.
I am a huge EJ fan and consider his ACL tone one of many benchmark guitar tones that I consider to be superhuman. This tone he is using lately is really difficult to make out.
