How To Play Layla Unplugged by Eric Clapton

Part 1

This was one of the first things I learned to play when I bought my first acoustic guitar (I started on electric) and I’m really happy to finally share this lesson with you all on YouTube. I’ve taught this song to over a hundred students and I still haven’t gotten tired of it! It’s excellent for building finger strength thanks to the Bb and C barre chords. It also incorporates chords into a lick and challenges the student to change chords quickly and cleanly.

If you find the Bb and C barre chords to be a little too challenging, we show you how to simplify them into something you can definitely play, if need be. If you’re looking to learn how to play Layla Unplugged just like the recording in a simple, intuitive way, these videos will definitely get you there!
