Hi everybody Shaun from England here, 
This is a tab of Layla by Derek and the Dominoes. 
I know for a fact it is 100% correct and it sounds faultless. 
I recommend playing it with as many hammer-ons and pull-offs 
as possible for that classic fast beat sound.


h=Hammer on
p=Pull off

Play this twice...

...then do this twice...

...but on the second time substitute the last note (16) for a bent 14


Well that is all i can give you for tab i hope you enjoy i play it on my 
es359 style semi-acoustic and it sounds brill.
I'll leave you with the lyrics.
p.s clapton IS god.

What'll you do when you get lonely
And nobody's waitin by your side
You've been runnin and hidin much too long
You know it's just your foolish pride

Layla, you got me on my knees
Layla, I'm beggin darlin, please
Layla, darlin, won't you ease my worried mind

Tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down
Like a fool, I fell in love with you
you turned my whole world upside down

Layla, you got me on my knees
Layla, I'm beggin darlin, please
Layla, darlin, won't you east my worried mind

Let's make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane
Please don't say we'll never find a way
Don't tell me all my love's in vain

Layla, you got me on my knees
Layla, I'm beggin darlin, please
Layla, darlin, won't you east my worried mind
