Verse again

Piano Break

until i get more, you should get the idea of how the song is, after it says "Back from
the land of california to my sweet home chicago" ther is a little change of pace and
then it goes back to a verse thing,then a piano break, and then the solo by Doyle, but
they layout goes like this

Intro Riff
Riff A5 \
Riff E5  \
Riff A5   verse
Riff E5  /
Riff D5 /
Piano Break
Solo by bramhall
Verse
Solo By Clapton
Intro Riff
End

Thanks for tabbing this classic, however, it is a little unusual. It looks like 12 bar blues with the exception of the order of the cords. If it starts in A (1) D (IV) and E (V) should fall in that order. From my experience Mr. Clapton sticks of the blues formate. That said, it still sounds good and the turnaround is interesting.
