Guitar Techniques - - Play: Rock -

The three-note re­peat­ing phrase is a Clapton spe­cialit y, and he of ten launches into this t ype of idea dur­ing a solo. The trick here is to re­peat a group of three notes over and over us­ing a semi­qua­ver sub­di­vi­sion (16th notes). There are four semi­qua­vers per beat, so a three -note phrase is dis­placed and re­solves ever y three beats. You can re­peat these t ype of ideas as long as you dare – in Cream, Eric could go on for ages!
