The guitar dominated the music of the last half of the 20th Century and Eric Clapton and Stephen Stills are virtuosos in both mediums. Clapton is British and listened to the American Blues musician Big Bill Broonzy who recorded over 200 songs from 1927 - 1950. We hear Broonzy's recordings back to back with Clapton of "Key to the Highway" and "Hey Hey". We hear both versions of Clapton's song "Layla" from the 1970 album by Derek and the Dominoes and then from the solo 1992 Uhplugged. Stephen Stills recorded his first solo album in 1970 and we hear his acoustic blues "Black Queen". From the 2008 "Live at Shepard's Bush" we hear "Four and Twenty" and "For What It's Worth".
