[Chorus 1, bars 1-14] The jam starts out with a two bar drum count-in. The open­ing chorus uses a se­lec­tion of clas­sic Clapton-st yle phrases based around shapes 1 and 2 of the A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale. When play­ing a C nat­u­ral note against the A7 chord, tr y bend­ing it slightly sharp (a blues ‘curl’). This will help it to fit in the Ma­jor con­text, and its Ma­jor/Mi­nor am­bi­gu­ity is what gives that ‘bluesy’ sound. Eric uses this trick all the time.
