In honor of Eric’s recent birthday (it was March 30th and he turned 72), here’s the third volume of the ClaptonTest™. Let’s give a big round of applause to one of the greatest guitarists of all time!

To get a passing grade, you’ll need to know Clapton’s musical friends and collaborators – musicians that have recorded with him, or performed with him or wrote songs that he’s covered. Oh, and you’ll also need to be intimately familiar with the sweet spot of Clapton’s catalog.
