Eric Clapton kicked off his Crossroads Guitar Festival at the American Airlines Center in Dallas on Friday. The guitar god joined Peter Frampton for a rendition of The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and also treated the audience to a stripped-down set of his own.

Frampton welcomed Clapton during the former’s set for the George Harrison-penned “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” Clapton played lead guitar on the original Beatles recording featured on the White Album and was one of the only guest musicians to ever play with The Beatles.

Backed by an acoustic band and drums, Clapton got his set underway with “Circus” followed by the Jimmy Cox classic “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out.” “Tears In Heaven” came next ahead of “Wonderful Tonight.” Slowhand would close out the acoustic set with “Lay Down Sally.”
