   Okay, today I would like to introduce everyone with a guitar legendary hero. At first I heard about him through my friend since we have to do an assignment for our "Guitar Application" course. We had chose to do about Eric Clapton a.k.a Slow Hand. Here are some details about him:

This is one of my favorite song by Clapton, Tears In Heaven:

   This is actually a very good song. Wanna know the story behind this song? This song was written by Clapton himself with the help of Will Jennings about the pain Clapton felt due to his son's death, Conor, who fell from a window of the 53rd-floor New York apartment of his mother's friend (March 20, 1991). Clapton, who arrived at the apartment shortly after the accident was visibly distraught for months afterwards. The lyric in this song, Would you know my name? implies Clipton's worry and how much he missed his son in a way that if they are going to meet in the heaven, will Conor still remember him as much as he do. Lovings father, right?

   This is the poster that I manage to complete for the assignment:
