Learn to solo like Eric Clapton in the acoustic version of the song Layla.

Clapton’s Influence: Worried Mind


Eric Clapton’s acoustic performance of Layla on his MTV Unplugged concert became an instant classic. His solo during that performance was brief but memorable.

In this course, I’ll teach you an extended-length acoustic blues solo that captures the sound of Clapton’s playing during that acoustic performance. We use the same paths, patterns, and accent notes in this solo that he used in his.

The things you learn in this solo will be helpful in other blues songs because we tackle the solo using patterns that can be used in any key.
