Lesson notes

Virtually every blues guitar player has played this traditional hit since Robert Johnson wrote it around 1936.

Here in this lesson, you’ll begin to understand how to play the main riffs of the song, as well as how to solo in the style of the great Eric Clapton.

By breaking down the riffs that form the iconic bouncing feel of this country blues song, you’ll get a deeper understanding of the techniques and phrasing that helped shape modern blues-rock.

By using string skipping, bending and double stops, Clapton is able to mimic the country players he idolized.

Of course there are also your standard power chord blues riffs that make this track even more accessible to players of nearly every skill level.
