Not too difficult, isn't it?
By the way, get hold of this concert recording:
* Nelson Mandela 70th birthday tribute, Wembley Stadium London 11.06.80 *
MARVELLOUS concert, with Eric Clapton on second guitar. This really kicks
ass!!
Broadcasted on tv so video's are available too.
Check out EC's soloing if you find the above too easy ;-)
