Solo Like Eric Clapton
Today we are going to be learning a lick in the style of a guitar player so accomplished he earned the title “God”, Eric Clapton.
Eric Clapton is renowned for his soulful phrasing, confident vibrato and fast blues rock runs. Eric’s speed was achieved a lot of the time from rapid hammer ons and pull offs. Another of Eric Clapton’s signature musical sounds is a guitar setting called “Woman Tone” that achieved a smooth, creamy overdriven sound.
“Woman Tone” is achieved by rolling the volume control all the way up and having the tone control rolled off completely.
Today we will be exploring some of Eric Clapton’s signature techniques with a lick in the key of A so plug in, tune up, crank that amp all the way up to 11 and let’s get started!
