Reviews - What do customers think about Eric Clapton from the album Eric Clapton Unplugged (Guitar Recorded Version)?
Beginners...do not purchase! Sep 26, 2006
If you are a beginner I would advise you not to purchase this book, as it is so wrong it is past being rubbish.
You do not get the songs that you are promised, but a very cut down version of them, and mostly in the wrong key, or alternate key from the original.
I have been playing these songs for years but lost my copy of the unplugged book. I purchased this thinking it was the larger 112 page version (the real one), and was saddened by the lack of tab in this book and by the fact that it is factually incorrect.
It states that "Tears In Heaven" is in G, when it is so obviously in E!
All the songs in this book are wrong!!!
This is not a good book, and all you get is melody lines! This may be good for an accompanying guitar but that is all.
An absolute waste!
Great book Jul 31, 2005
This book is tabbed just like the recording. If you are a clapton fan you won't be disappointed
looking for the transcribed version? Aug 25, 2002
As the title states, this book is the easy guitar version. If that's what your looking for then this is the book for you. If you are looking for the note for note (as recorded on the album) version then go to musiciansfriend.com
Wrong one! Apr 14, 2002
If you think this book will teach you the songs on "Unplugged", it won't. This is just a simplified version of the song transcriptions and is pretty much useless.
There's another version out there that contains the note-for-note transcrptions. That's the version I bought several years ago when "Unplugged" first came out, and that's the one you should buy...
good for easy guitar Jun 4, 2000
Naturally, the title tells it all. Well, not naturally, but in this case it just so happens to be so. Although, as you can tell, I gave it 3 stars, it really can be made 5 stars if you're for the most part a beginner. The book includes all of the unplugged songs, and they are even in TAB form. The only catch is that these TAB's aren't the actual TAB's Clapton plays. Thus, although you'll be playing a more complex version of the songs then just chords, it still won't have the same fingering as Claptons. Although there is another version that actually has the exact fingering as Clapton (besides the solos, unfortunately), I haven't seen it on this site. There is one more version of the book on this site, but I'm pretty sure that it is the chords only verison, or sheet music version. Personally speeking, I've only played for around 1 1/2 years, and I have found the real version (the one with Claptons actual fingering in TAB form, which isn't available on this site) to be rather easy, and rewarding. Although some songs you might just rather learn the chords for, others loose much of thier style when played in only chords. Thus, I recommend going down to your local Guitar Center and seeing if they have the real version in stock. As far as the content, it's what you expect from slowhand. Perfection. The album consists of many blues classics, and the book is true to it. In my opinion, nearly every song on this album is worth knowing how to play if you wish to enhance your mastery of the blues. Get one version or another soon, though.
