Watch the Strange Brew: Ex. 4b online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Kings of Rock & Roll Vol. 5: Eric Clapton

This excerpt is based loosely on Eric's solo on this tune, beginning in 13th position and utilizing a big two-step bend, from D to F#, right at the start. The first six bars of this solo stay in 13th position, demonstrating how much mileage one can get from one position with the use of lyrical phrasing. Bars 9 and 10 feature repeated whole step and two-step bends, a la Albert King's "Crosscut Saw" solo, revealing this influence on Eric as well.
