“Layla” is a well-known Eric Clapton song, but the guitar solo is not him. It’s Duane Allman who plays the screeching slide from the 2:20 mark onward.
The melodic piano along with Allman’s guitar is one of the most haunting and beautiful pieces of music I know.
In an interview, Clapton referred to Allman as the “musical brother I’d never had but wished I did.”
If you listen to the song, you’ll understand how their styles complemented each other so well.
Hope you enjoy and have a great week,
