In this rock blues guitar lesson, I’ll show you how to play a Cream (Eric Clapton) solo composition in which you’ll be playing both rhythm and lead parts. This is a classic “call and response” technique that allows you to alternate back and forth between rhythm and lead.
In this guitar lesson you will see how to play everything that you heard in the intro. All break down note for note. You will see also what is behind it, so you can take this little jam and you can extend it if you want to. You can have your own jam session with yourself. It’s a lot of fun.
This is these solo composition like this are great because a lot of times you don’t have a jam track or you don’t have another musician to play along with. If somebody says hey play something on guitar your kind of like scrambling for ideas, so this is another thing that you can do on your own. It sounds great by itself. With a heavy overdrive it also sound pretty good. Clean channel if you want to go that way too.
So this is an Eric Clapton Cream era influence. There’s a lot of Cream licks that are thrown into that. There’s a little bit of Robin Trower as well. So it’s kind of Robin Trower meet Eric Clapton. A lot more Eric Clapton though.
