Wonderful Tonight, by Eric Clapton

Today’s offering of Tuesday Tunes (Four Lane Highway edition) slows things down a bit.

For the uninitiated, these posts feature original artists doing the songs covered by Four Lane Highway, the band I played bass in a long time ago.

Like last week’s Bob Seger tune, this is one of the songs I sang — if what I did could be properly called singing.

  1. As I recall, you sang this one very well. I also recall being able to slow dance with ladies in the audience a time or two while you sang it — if what I did could be properly called dancing.

    John … the bass part was rather easy, too, which was why I was able to sing it and play it at the same time. I can strum a guitar and sing, but I was never able to divide my mind between playing a semi-complicated bass line and singing.

    Deven … why, thank you. I recall a couple of times other people telling me I did OK on that, too. Larry’s sister Cheryl once gave me a nod and a thumbs-up and mouthed “good job” while I was singing it. So, I always enjoyed doing that song.

    The timing was easy for you guys but if my memory serve me I struggled with the timing of the lead breaks.

    Hey, Larry. Clapton has a unique flow… that’s the best I can describe what I hear. I could imagine it being very difficult to imitate.
    Of course we all remember that I had trouble with timing in general…
