He has performed with celebrities such as Paul McCartney and others. His genius is recognized around the world. It is impossible not to note the similarity of the musician with the image in this Eric Clapton Blues oil painting Leonid Afremov, such images always make a great impression. And everything is so good and only a person who knows him well, who is familiar with his works, and who has watched a lot of his concerts can create such an image of the musician. And all this can be said about Leonid Afremov, for whom music, in particular Eric Clapton’s music, was not just an entertainment, a pleasant pastime, but played a very big role in his life. Of course, you are also familiar with the work of Eric Clapton. It’s generally difficult to find a person who has never heard his main song – My Guitar Gently Weeps. Who knows, maybe in the painting of Leonid Afremov he performs namely this song. If you have seen at least a few of his performances, you know that he is always as concentrated on the stage as possible. This concentration corresponds to his appearance – always a strict suit and glasses. The same can be said about his hairstyle – it certainly makes his image even stricter. When we watch such musicians, we are always interested in how their hands do not get tired of moving with such speed along the neck of the guitar. In this sense, Eric Clapton is a real virtuoso. And when you look at how he plays the guitar it seems that he was born with this a guitar in his hands.

Probably these sounds are familiar to everyone who attended a more or less large concert. And if you have not been to such concerts, we are sure that you have everything just ahead.
Continuing our acquaintance with Eric Clapton, we would like to bring to your attention a few interesting facts about him:
- The musician’s first “dream guitar” was the Gibson ES-335, a cherry-colored semi-acoustics. Clapton loved this instrument very much, not only because it helped him to compose good blues, but also because he could play music in any style, depending on the place and requirements.
- Clapton once took part in the recording of the Beatles In 1968, the famous four invited the musician to record solo in one of the songs from their White Album.
- Based on the usual Stratocaster, Eric Clapton himself created an ideal guitar for himself, satisfying all his requirements. To do this, he built in an electric circuit that amplified the mid frequencies and added another fret.
- The ugly side of the musician’s life was connected with drug addiction, which he not only managed to successfully overcome, but subsequently donated a considerable amount to create a rehabilitation center for those who suffer from such addiction. The memory of the experiences was so strong that the guitarist decided to sell his collection of 70 guitars in order to establish a center in Antigua where everyone could change their lives forever abandoning the addiction.
We hope that you will be completely satisfied both from the painting and singing of Eric Clapton.
