clapton's guitar sounds like crap, and there's no sustain or anything, and it's really bland and annoying and his guitar doesn't gently weep or anything. clapton is overrated as it is :mad:

name the most saddest song you can think of here :(

Isn't tears in heaven supposed to be sad because it is about his dead son, not because he evokes emotion in his playing?

<font color=teal>I disagree, Clapton is the man.</font>

supposedly, but you know, it's still not that sad. the way people went on about it i was expecting it to be all soulful and heartfelt with some tasty yet soulful licks thrown in or something :mad:

if i wrote a song about my dead kid, it'd be a whole lot more sad anyway :mad:

Agreed. But to be fair, I wouldn't be able to write something brilliant about something like that. In fact, I would consider it an insult to even try (if the song were to be sold as Tears In Heaven was. But thinking about it seriously, If I were to write a song about such a thing, I would make sure nobody but me would ever hear it)

layla is a good song, i'll give him that.

everything else i've heard, and i've heard a fair bit, seems to bore me though.

specially sunshine of your love after the way hendrix made it kick ass :mad:

yeah, i'd probably be a bit iffy about something like that too. or if i did write one i'd make it instrumental or not make it too obvious :(
