Welcome to this Layla Unplugged Guitar Tutorial by Eric Clapton!
This is such an awesome song and an absolute classic. I can vividly remember being 8-9 years old and watching the DVD of this performance, I didn’t even know how to play guitar back then! It’s extremely fun to play and has a lot to it so you’ll be sure to pick up a few new tricks from learning this song. In the video i’ll teach you all the rhythm parts as well as both guitar solos in the song.

Enjoy! Like this #layla video by #ericclapton and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!
