Here's how to play Sunshine Of Your Love by Cream with Eric Clapton!

This video is party of the Andy Guitar Band Program where after following the tutorial below you can jam along to a full live band with Andy in the video!

This aims to help those who struggle to jam along to full songs and to also help those who have the ambition to play in a band one day. I hope it helps!

Solo tutorial to follow shortly.

Let's get started!

Song breakdown

Main Riff

In the video, I break down the three main riffs of this song. Riffs 1 and 2 are based on the D blues scale (which is the D minor pentatonic scale with one note added!). Riff 3 is similar but moves down a string to the G blues scale.

Song structure

This entire song roughly follows a 12 bar blues in D, but each section is longer and features the signature riff. Think of it this way and it becomes much easier to play along to the whole song!
