Lesson notes

Perhaps Clapton’s most famous song, and certainly one that every guitarist should be able to play.

The main riff that drives the song is repeated in three different octaves, so you’ll get a fluid understanding of how he views the fretboard and his use of overdubs as a studio guitarist.

The opeing solo will be taught in detail so you can emulate the bends and slurs that give it the character and attitude that make the song what it is.

And last but not least, the chords progression for the verse takes you through a harmonic tour of chords that seem to change keys regularly, but in fact can be played over using a simple blues scale.

There is a lot of music in this lesson so bring your chops and get ready to rip!
