Looks good I'll have to try it later in the day.
Liked the tab you had for Simple Man btw, I had never heard that song before but have a copy on my computer now.

Wow...this is a lot easier than I thought it would be. I don't know any songs at all from start to finish yet, and I fully intend on making this the first one I learn all the way through. One of my favorite Clapton tunes.

This is a *great* tab, I can follow it nearly note for note with the MP3. Thanks a bunch!!

Don

I think the problem you are experiencing is the tab "wrapping" due to width restraints on the page.

Try copying and pasting it (in Courier font if possible) into Word, and move the left and right hand margins - I think you'll find it looks perfect if you do this.

Cheers

Matt

Great tab, Thanks.
dpiper- I had the same problem with the lines wrapping around. I changed my screen resolution to 1024 by 768 and that took care of it.

I'm having trouble with the beginning of this. I can do the very beginning, the open low E, the hammer on, the open A and the A on the G string, but it is the hammer on and pluck on the B that messes me up. Any hints/tips?

It may be my timing, but I doubt it - it just doesn't seem to sound right. It is a beautiful song, and it pains me to butcher it so ;)

Try ring finger on B string and hammer on/pull off with pinky....
I had the same trouble as you and then tried it this way and after a short amount of practice found it easy....also found it good for working the pinky..

I do a little mini-barre with my index finger on the 2nd fret and hammer and pull off the d note using my middle finger. Assuming you're using your index to hammer on the low E string it's easy to just drop it down over the G, B & high E strings.

Well I got this guitar and I'm tryin' to learn how to make it talk.

Nice tab! This song was a lot easier than I thought. I've got the verse and chorus a lot quicker than i expected. Only thing is I have to keep my fretting hand in this funny claw grip all the time to fret the low E with my thumb from one side and the G and B strings with my index and middle finger from the other.
