Eric Clapton is one of the best guitarists of all time (and he can sing as well :-)), and his lessons are always welcomed by my students. This week's new lesson is an acoustic blues tune from his Unplugged album (a great album by the way), which is actually a cover of the original Big Bill Broonzy version.

I personally like Eric Clapton's version just a bit more, but you be the judge 🙂 Here is Big Bill's version.

But anyhow, let get back to the lesson. As I said, Hey Hey is a blues tune, which is played in the key of E. It is a perfectly standard 12 bar blues song, so from that, you should already be able to deduct which chords you'll be playing over in the song. I'll give you a minute, read on when you have it!
