More Clapton for you EC fans out there. Here's the chord chart for Running on Faith, with standard placement of the chord changes. If you listen to his very popular unplugged version, you will find the chord change locations to be different, though I did use his verse wording from unplugged here.


RUNNING ON FAITH - Eric Clapton

INTRO: (one run through the verse progression)

VERSE 1: (D/F# = 2 0 0 2 3 2, Em7 = 0 2 2 0 3 0 & G7 = 3 2 0 0 0 1)

[G] LATELY I'VE BEEN [D/F#]RUNNING ON FAITH [Em7]

[G] WHAT ELSE CAN A [D/F#]POOR BOY DO [G7]

Great song,
been learning this one inside out for the last week or two. Can play it pretty well but for the life of me can't reach the notes vocally at the point where you sing "I'VE ALWAYS BEEN ONE TO TAKE EACH AND EVERY".
Tried playing it with the capo on 1st,2nd,3rd and 4th frets just can't get there.
Well thats a lie, I can if I really concerntrate on what I'm doing but then it still goes bad 9 times out of 10. When it really mattered last night at the open mic I think I offended quite a few delicate ears, including my own
Been watching a few youtube covers of it and it looks like I'm not the only one seems that apart from eric clapton only about one third of those covering the song can get up with that B7 .
I thinking I shall have to get some vocal coaching from somewhere.
Unless somebody has a technique they know of for getting round those awkward phrases ?

I live in hope.

Thanks Jonnyt.

Rod. :wink:

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

1. Tune down a half or whole step.

OR

2. Transpose to a lower key.

Just changed the B7 to a B, it sounds fine and I seem to be able to reach that note a lot easier. :wink:
