What a great Clapton tune. With some of the bass movement with the guitars I find this one to be a great song to get under our fingers. The chords are mainly A, D and E with some improv happening amongst their rhythm. I ended up finding what I thought was the most consistent between the parts and will be going though those.

A – A – A – A – D – D
A – A – A – A – D – D – E – E

A – A – D – D
E – E – A – A

The solo takes place in the A Minor Scale.
