Years ago this guy I knew decided to learn how to play Eric Clapton’s “Lay Down Sally” to pick up girls. Simple melody, sweetly seductive lyric – can’t miss, right?
Then he actually tried to play it. That simple melody Clapton played so easily ended up twisting my buddy’s fingers into knots. He never did learn to play that song.
There’s a reason they say Clapton is God, and here he is working his omnipotent guitar skills in 1985.
