In this Cocaine guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this classic by Eric Clapton.
The tuning is standard tuning.
The are only two simple chord progressions being played for the entire song, however, these chord progressions are heavily embellished with lots of guitar layers. I will show you how to play some of the more essential guitar fills and layers, but since some sections include 4-5 guitars playing at the same time, I have instead opted to keep it just to the essential licks and chord progressions during the verses.
For Eric Clapton's main solo, we basically have two sections. For the first section, I will show you how to play it note-for-note. In the second section of the solo, we have multiple guitars soloing at the same. Since that is impossible to play, I will just show you some of the more essential licks, then demonstrate the scales you should improvise with instead.
I will do sort of the same thing for the outro solo.
I hope you guys enjoy learning this Eric Clapton classic!
