2. Eric Clapton
Eric Clapton’s guitar work relies on basic yet smooth sounds to produce timeless melodies. The best guitarists are typically trained in blues or have adopted blues music in rock, but Eric has mastered fusing the two together. In the early stages of his career, he played alongside two other jazz guitarists, and in order to keep up, he had to produce his own unique sounds. This is what we can hear from his work in Bell Bottom Blues and White Room.
