He used to record himself playing on his portable Grundig tape recorder, and listening to that over and over until he felt he got it right.
While I was changing my strings the audience would often break into a slow handclap, inspiring Giorgio (Gomelsky, The Yardbirds’ manager) to dream up the nickname of ‘Slowhand’ Clapton.
[I choked up as my guitars were sold, Eric Clapton, Daily uk] After Eric left the Yardbirds on March 25, 1965, the guitar ended up with the band’s new guitarist – Jeff Beck, who used for a brief period of time before acquiring a Fender Esquire.
(Jeff Beck:) We were on the road constantly and I didn’t even have my own guitar.
I [initially] used Eric’s red Tele, which I think belonged to the Yardbirds.
[Legendary Guitar: Jeff Beck’s 1954 Yardbirds Esquire] However, since Jeff was never actually seen playing the guitar, there are some doubts whether this story is completely true.
[…] As said, this was Eric’s main guitar with the Yardbirds, and it was likely used on both the 1964 live album “Five Live Yardbirds” recorded at the Marquee Club in London [Yardbirds at The Marquee Club 1964], and on the tracks that Eric played on “For Your Love” in 1965 (basically everything except “I’m Not Talking”, “I Ain’t Done Wrong”, and “My Girl Sloopy” – which were of course played by Jeff Beck).Eric used this guitar prior to joining the Yardbirds circa 1962, while he was playing in his first band called “The Rooster”.According to Eric, he received this guitar as a gift from his grandmother: The Kay was the guitar that my grandmother bought me on the “hire-purchase” scheme.Next to that, you’ll also notice that Eric’s guitar is fitted with a black round pickguard, while every other Kay Jazz II features a very distinctively shaped pickguard mostly in white.This possibly goes to show that the guitar was somewhat modified, or that it was simply misidentified, or perhaps this is just inconsistency across the same model over the years.Eric’s first guitar was an acoustic Hoyer – which he got as a present for his 13th birthday.
