Eric Clapton – I’m Tore Down (Opening Licks)

Please visit Jim Clymer’s Tutorial for the full lesson, tab, original audio and complete breakdown of this arrangement.

The Tab file here is my own work and represents my interpretation of the song. Tab files with reference to any artist are not meant to be actual transcriptions of copyrighted material. All rights belong to the copyright holders.

Note: I have learned many songs that I do not think I could have learned without the help of Tab. It seems that breaking the songs down into their various parts (intro, verse, chorus, bridge etc.) and writing the tab is part of my process of learning the songs and helps me remember them better.

Eric Clapton – I’m Tore Down (Opening Licks) - Jim Clymer
Eric Clapton – I’m Tore Down (Opening Licks)

In today’s blues guitar lesson, I will teach you the opening licks from “I’m Tore Down” off of Eric Clapton’s “From the Cradle” album. This song was originally written and performed by the great Freddie King. The song is in the key of C, and starts on the V chord (G7). The first lick comes in at the last beat of the first bar. You’ll have to listen to the song for the correct timing. All the licks are in the C blues scale played in the 8th position.

A nice Backing Track (mp3) to practice.
