Steppin’ Out – 1960’s Guitar Lesson – Eric Clapton Blues Guitar Lesson
Back in the 1960’s there were a few songs that you had to learn to be taken seriously as a guitarist. These songs were often considered to be a “right of passage” for guitarists. Killing Floor by Howlin’ Wolf was one of these songs. At the time, Killing Floor was one of the more technically challenging songs (Especially at the speed people like Hendrix started playing it at) Steppin’ Out was also one of those technically challenging, impressive songs.
Since the 1960’s, the guitar has obviously evolved and gotten much more technical. Those songs that were technically challenging at that time, have now become the foundation and back-bone of modern guitar. So if you want to improve your guitar skills, and become a well-rounded guitarist, you have to go back and learn what the guitar was.
I’m obviously a huge Eric Clapton fan. There is a new generation of young guitar players my age and below that don’t understand why Clapton was God. I think the main problem is that a lot of young guitarists only know Clapton’s softer hits, and his reggae stuff. They’ve only heard mega hits like Wonderful Tonight, and Tears in Heaven. You have to go back to Clapton’s earlier stuff to hear his game changing, brilliant guitar playing. So if you’re one of these guitarists that doesn’t see why Clapton is God, check out Blind Faith, Cream, John Mayall and the Blues Breakers with Clapton, and Dereck and the Dominos. Get yourself educated.
