Per musicologist Walter Everett, particularly notable features ... (link)

of Clapton's originally un-credited performance include:

- "the increasing lengths of thrice-heard first scale degrees (0:17–0:19),

- the restraint shown by rests in many bars then unexpected appearances (as at 0:28–0:29),

- commanding turnaround phrases (0:31–0:33),

- expressive string bends marking modal changes from C to C♯ (0:47–0:53),

- power retransition (1:21–1:24),

- emotive vibrato (2:01–2:07),

- and a solo (1:55–2:31) with a "measured rise in intensity, rhythmic activity, tonal drive and registral climb
