Sunshine Of Your Love

In this lesson I break down and show you how to play Eric Clapton’s solo from the Cream classic, “Sunshine of Your Love”.

This is one of my all-time favorite guitar solos because of its almost-lyrical phrasing. This is, quite literally, a guitar solo you can sing aloud. Clapton not only lays down some very tasty licks, but he also plays with timing and phrasing to give the solo two distinct halves that finishes with a real bang at the end. 

So grab your guitar and learn how to play one of the all time great rock and roll guitar solos!
