In this very cool UK video from “Cream at the Royal Albert Hall” Eric Clapton shows in a interview the sound and use of his psychedelic Gibson SG, his wah, woman tone, and blues skill.

We also LOVE the voice of the English narrator…”the electronic guitar is also dismissed as nothing more than a jangling noise machine, etc”…he sounds right out of a 60″s British Sci-Fi film—too much!
