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

Very good at capturing the cream tone, My hats off on this one, he's nailing the vibe,

Still like RF's take better:rotflmao 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)

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?

Maybe EJ isn't shooting for RF tone, maybe instead paying tribute to the Cream, of which ANY RF version fails

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.

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.


Anything beats those Mickey Mouse muffs!



Do you actually think that was good tone?

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.
