Why Should You Learn to Play Guitar Like Eric Clapton?
... Better yet, CAN you?
Read Below to Discover the 8 Surprising Reasons
You Should - and yes, CAN! - Play Guitar Just
Like the "Slowhand" Master Himself ...
Of course, the question needs to be asked ...
Even if you could play like Eric Clapton, should you?
Before we answer that, we want you to imagine something for a second ...
Imagine picking up your guitar and being able to wring such emotion out of your it that it sounds like the single string you’re bending is a mournful cry, a nearly human weeping sound that melts the heart of anyone listening.
Or imagine that by learning to perform simple micro bends you can create searing guitar lines on demand that turn heads and get listeners to wonder where you learned how to do ... THAT.
Finally, imagine what it’s like to create a sound that’s much BIGGER and FULLER than what you’re currently doing. Imagine being able to fill a room and your listener’s ears with a sound so ... EPIC ... that it seems to carry all the weight and history of blues and rock and roll on its strong shoulders.
Now THAT’S why you should learn how to play like Clapton!
But those aren’t the only reasons ...
The other reason is this:
Learning the Same Techniques as Eric Clapton Not Only
Makes You “The Complete Guitar Player” — It’s Way
More Doable Than You Might Think!
We discovered this over the last several months personally. Here’s what happened ...
When it became the time to create out next instructional set, we turned to the blues for inspiration. (As we often do; if you know anything about the instructors here at Guitar Jamz then you know we believe that almost everything we play is alllll about the blues.)
So here’s what we did. We strapped ourselves in and dug super deep into everything Clapton did. We wanted to unlock the secret to the “Slowhand” master himself.
So we literally lived and breathed Eric Clapton for months on end.
We studied his blistering lead lines. We deconstructed his scorching licks. We broke down every flaming riff, flick and bending technique we could find.
We played along with all his best solos. And then we distilled all of the best stuff into a step-by-step, teachable game plan you can absorb to transform your own guitar playing.
The "Slow Hand" master's best licks, riffs, tricks and techniques --- all demystified and made simple.

8 Great Reasons Why Any Guitar Student Should Learn to Play Eric Clapton
Clapton’s stuff is incredibly TASTY, but it’s not acrobatic or difficult when you do it the way we teach it.
His material encompasses such an amazing range! It practically covers everything you might ever want to play: the robust blues-rock from his "power-trio" Cream days, blues-based psychedelic pop, the mellow style of JJ Cale (think “After Midnight” and “Cocaine”). Heck, Clapton even helped bring reggae to the masses with “I Shot The Sheriff”! Obviously, learning such a wide range of styles will greatly improve your playing.
Part of Clapton's’ genius is all the little licks and tricks he has in his bag. I’m not just talking about his hammer-ons and pull-offs — we teach you those as well — but all the little flicks and bends he does. And not just the big whole step bends and minor third bends, but all the little micro bends that almost make the guitar sound out of tune but give it that exquisitely cool flavor. Yummy!
Clapton’s able to wring so much EMOTION out of his guitar. (Listen to the last three minutes of “Layla” and tell us you can’t feel the searing agony of unrequited love in that unmistakable guitar figure that Clapton plays with Duane Allman.) Learning Clapton’s techniques will let you play with more depth and feeling.
His stuff just sounds great, plain and simple. Whether it’s that “BIG” sound from his Cream days or something more custom such as his self-created “Woman Tone” which has been described as "thick yet piercing, overdriven yet smooth, distorted yet creamy,” to play Clapton is to become truly accomplished.
You’ll begin to master mixing minor and major pentatonics together. Like all the great blues players before him, Clapton often toed the line between the sweet major sound and that straight, rock minor pentatonic sound. He blended those together beautifully, and I’ll show you how to do that, too.
Learning Clapton is like getting a brain transplant from all the blues greats in history. That’s because he studied all the greats himself and cites Freddie King, B.B. King, Albert King, Buddy Guy, and Hubert Sumlin as big influences. "I have never found anything more deeply soulful than Robert Johnson,” Clapton once said. "His music remains the most powerful cry that I think you can find in the human voice, really. It seemed to echo something I had always felt.” Clapton stood on their shoulders to pioneer blues-rock history forward, and now you can stand on his.
There is a basic simplicity to his style that is perfect for anyone who wants to improve their blues or rock playing. As Eddie Van Halen said:
"Eric Clapton is basically the only guitar player who influenced me — even though I don't sound like him. There was a basic simplicity to his playing, his style, his vibe and his sound. He took a Gibson guitar and plugged it into a Marshall, and that was it. The basics. The blues. His solos were melodic and memorable — and that's what guitar solos should be, part of the song. I could hum them to you. I would literally slow down those records and learn every lick, and bottom line it's all blues-based. He made me pick up a guitar.”
- Eddie Van Halen
That quote is just so good, we wished we had written it!

Bending Techniques in "A" Root Minor Pentatonic. In this example we are using the "A" root position of the minor pentatonic and it opens with the High E string being bent up to the root. One of the coolest things about the A rooted minor pent is that this classic bend happens on the High E string which is a bit easier and just plain fun!
CLAPTON MODULE 14:
"A" Root Position Minor Pentatonic Sour Bend and slide lick. This is one of our personal favorite secrets! This lick is in the key of A.

Lots of repetition of this lick will be a valuable asset in your arsenal!
CLAPTON MODULE 15:
Double Stop Bend lick. Key of E double stop bend lick followed by some classic maneuvering through the most used spot of the minor Pentatonic. Also pay close attention to the B string bend up to the root. It’s a growling, raunchy double stop bend in a power trio setting. It will work in any kind of blues.
CLAPTON MODULE 16:
BB Box Concepts in the Key of E. The BB Box is a great spot to mix sounds from both the Minor and Major Pentatonic scales! Notice the hammer ons, pull offs, flick offs, and different types of bends. The BB Box gives you some really sophisticated sounds that take you out of the basic rut you can sometimes find yourself in with the minor pentatonic only. It’s such a great position that sits between the major and minor pentatonic, which is a really cool sound for the blues …. or any rock solo, for that matter.
CLAPTON MODULE 17:
Jamtrack in the key of E. Let’s JAM!!! Here we give you a standard blues jam for you in the key of El so have at it and play with me. Have fun!

CLAPTON MODULE 19:
E Blues Sliding Transition Lick. Here's a lick in the key of E, using the E minor pentatonic extension from the open scale position. A cool hammer on to the Major 3rd (G#) which gives it a bluesy touch. Also notice the space, or breaths, between the licks.
CLAPTON MODULE 20:
C Minor Pentatonic descending extended scale. This module shows the descending Pentatonic extended scale. Almost every note has a bend added to it. Notice the Pre bends, as well as the 1/4 tone “sour bends." These nuances take something that sounds like a scale, and creates a more musical sound.
CLAPTON MODULE 21:
Mixing the Major and Minor Pentatonics in the key of D. You are going to LOVE this D rock progression, trust me.
CLAPTON MODULE 22:
D minor pentatonic lick hammer on pull off flicking technique. This is a real common hammer on, pull off FAST lick that you can repeat. We love this sound!
