Eric Clapton - Crossroads 1st Solo (Songs Guitar Lesson CS-001) How to play

Justin's Completely Free Guitar Lessons, Lesson CS-001.

This is the first of my new series of lessons covering classic guitar solos. This one looks at Eric Clapton's first solo in the song Crossroads as recorded with Cream. It's full of interesting mixes of major and minor pentatonic, and got loads of great licks to steal!

I hope the "pace" is good, I to tried get the balance right between going slow and not making it too long... do let me know if you think it needs more or less detail so I can make the future ones better!

Because I had my amp up real loud I had to use different microphones than usual, in fact I had two mics on to pick up the vocal and they are slightly out but for some stupid reason I couldn't get them to linet up right, seemed close enough when I was editing, but sounds a little weird now on YouTube... just in case you wondered...
