I will be posting a Series of Learn Guitar Riff videos for the Top Riffs of all time from Famous Guitar players.

Sunshine of Your Life
It’s getting near dawn,
When lights close their tired eyes.
I’ll soon be with you my love,
To give you my dawn surprise.
I’ll be with you darling soon,
I’ll be with you when the stars start falling.

I’ve been waiting so long
To be where I’m going
In the sunshine of your love.

According to Wikipwedia how Clapton tried to Learn guitar riffs:

Clapton’s guitar tone on the song is created using his 1964 Gibson SG guitar and a Marshall amplifier. It is also believed that a Vox Clyde McCoy Picture Wah is placed fully in the bass position for the solo section. The song is renowned is a top learn guitar riff among guitarists as perhaps the best example of his legendary late-’60s “woman tone”, a thick yet articulate sound that many have tried to emulate. For the solo Clapton quoted the opening lines from the pop standard “Blue Moon,” creating a contrast between the sun and the moon.

    You are presenting a good and simple way for a person who wants quick achievements and in no time he can play his favorites songs.
    When I learned to play the guitar many years ago it took me months of reading music notes before I even show a guitar.

    This is always the best way to learn nowadays is by video. I have been teaching using CD which is outdated and sometimes the student has a hard time hearing if the mic is not in the right place.
    Good Job on the Eric Clapton video.
