Here's how to play the legendary song Crossroads by Cream and Eric Clapton on guitar!

'Crossroads' aka 'Cross Road Blues' was originally written and recorded by Eric Johnson in 1936. Cream (ft Eric Clapton) recorded a cover of this song in the late 60s, which became a definitive version of this classic song.

The chords are based on a 12 bar blues progression in the key of A, with the regular blues riff replaced by the signature 'crossroads' riff on the A chord.
