This is one of my favorite Eric Clapton songs, well there are many of his songs that I 
totally dig but this is a great song, musically, melodically and lyrically. This is a 
great bassline as well and is suitable for any player from beginner to advanced. 

Ok here is the low-down. The song starts off very melodic and tasteful and cuts loose to 
form a bassline, which is funky, groovy and complicated, without detracting from the song
or losing its tasteful or melodic edge. This is a great example of a sorta more melodic-
based style of bassplaying, which remains versatile enough to be used simply or in a more 
complicated rhythmic pattern such as funk. What also makes this bassline so great, aside 
this song. Even though the rhythm section, other insturments and general intensity of the 
song increases, the bass is the primary motivator; this song fully illustrates how 
important the bass is in terms of controlling the drive of the band and the drive of a song.
 
Without further delay, here it is, I know you will have fun learning it; I had a lot of 
fun tabbing it.

Enjoy
