Before You Accuse Me - Eric Clapton (Beginners Blues)

In this beginners guitar lesson, we look at how to play an authentic sounding old school 12 bar blues in E. For this, I always use the song example Before You Accuse Me, the Eric Clapton ‘Unplugged’ Version, which I show you how to play here. I also waffle on about keys, substitution, and all sort of other handy things that you may not ‘get’ the first time round, that’s OK! Just play along, see if you like it, then we’ll take it apart later on with more blues songs
