This is one of my favorite Eric Clapton songs. When ever I have to play a
gig, I always make sure this song is in my set list. But I also noticed the
chord tab for this song was wrong, so I made my own. If you have any
trouble with the song, listen to the song first. When you've made your
final judgement on the song, please rate and/or leave a comment

And that should be that for Bell Bottom Blues by Eric Clapton. One of these
days I'll figure out the solo, but it works great as is. And once

Great chords, but I think there is an Amaj7 between the A and A7 in the end of the Chorus

I agree with Kenny, it sounds a little better with the AM7 added in. Still, a great tab.
