This is one of the best versions I've heard him play. Great intro, his solo rocks, and his rhythm player does a completly different take on it, and plays a very incredible original solo. Is that a young Andy fairweather low? I don't think he started playing with clapton till the early 90's and it doesn't look like him, but I'm not sure.

Its amazing how simple yet effective that chord riff is. I Have no idea who that other guitarist could be.

At this time I would like to tell you that NO MATTER WHAT...IT IS WITH GOD. HE IS GRACIOUS AND MERCIFUL. HIS WAY IS IN LOVE, THROUGH WHICH WE ALL ARE. IT IS TRULY -- A LOVE SUPREME --. John Coltrane

Tim Renwick <I believe. Did a little looking around on the site, a commentor mentioned his name, searched for him on google, site said he played with Clapton...

My favorite part of his solo: 2:50-2:55
Other guys solo: 5:50- 5:55

Both play incredibly.

Another possibility would be George Terry.

He played with Clapton in the '70s

I don't think that EC ever played with particularly hot pickups - he does, howerver, have a 25dB mid-boost circuit built into his guitar.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

that 25 db mid boost plus noiseless pickups cut through your soul.

They most definitly do. Until I found out about that, I always wondered how he got such a fat tone out of a stratocaster. But yeah, that's the key to his tone...incredible. I'll post a few of my other favourite videos in a bit, although my true favorite isnt on you tube, it's from Live at Hyde Park, when he played Everyday, incredible job with it. Andy is on rhythm and he plays a kick..butt solo.

One day I'm going to buy that Clapton model strat in black, or the Buddy Guy custom model. Once I find a job!
