EXAMPLE7 Shuf­fle Ac ous­tic

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

Take a re­laxed shuf­fle feel, some clas­sic blues moves and a cou­ple of not too ob­vi­ous chord changes and you have a nice Clap­ton-style melodic blues on your hands. The strum­ming is looser and freer than the writ­ten tran­scrip­tion makes it seem, but make sure the top notes are heard clearly above the rest, par­tic­u­larly those on the third string. Even on an acous­tic, with no ef­fects and no vi­brato to speak of, you can in­stantly tell it’s Clap­ton. And that’s some feat!
