George E. Terry (born in 1950) is an American blues rock and rock and roll guitarist best known for his live and studio work with Eric Clapton during the 1970s. He is also known for his studio work with a number of other artists, including ABBA, the Bee Gees, Joe Cocker, Andy Gibb, Freddie King, Diana Ross, Stephen Stills, and Kenny Rogers. Much of this work came through Terry's association with Bee Gees member Barry Gibb, who was in high demand as a producer in the 1980s.

Prior to joining Clapton's band, Terry was already a well-established South Florida guitarist and session musician, and had played with several notable bands including "GAME" who released two albums in 1970 and 1971. Terry was the group's featured lead guitarist and bassist, and wrote several songs on both albums.

Clapton recorded three of Terry's songs: Mainline Florida, Lay Down Sally, and Don't Blame Me. Terry was a member of Clapton's studio and touring band until it was dissolved in 1979.

Terry's song What'll I Do with the Bellamy Brothers received heavy radio airplay. Terry released a solo album in 2004, entitled Guitar Drive.
