Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Jack Bruce. The classic virtuoso trio that made up the epic late 1960’s psychedelic blues band “Cream.” Without Cream, who knows where music would be now. Without Eric Clapton, who knows where guitar would be!
Clapton was a big deal. He really did change the game. The world of guitar was a completely different place once he hit the scene! With his unbelievable blues chops, and his childlike sense of wonder exploring new tones on the electric guitar, he might just be the most influential guitarist of all time!
Ginger Baker was a jazz drummer at his core. He brought a magnificent swing to the equation. He had virtuoso chops. A lot of blues drummers tend to leave a lot of space, but not Ginger. Ginger was in your face blasting classy jazz rock beats.
Jack Bruce isn’t like most bass players. He knows how to walk around the chords while still highlighting the beat! He plays busy when he needs to sound busy, and he leaves space when it’s needed. Not to mention that he nailed down the vocals of Cream!
Sunshine Of Your Love is a classic, must know guitar riff. It’s not very hard, and there are tons of variations that Eric pulls out of midair. In this lesson, we dive deep into the riff, chords and of course his improvisations on the riff.
