Yes man, this is awsome. One of my all-time favorite Clapton tunes, and I've been working on figuring it out, but I couldn't ge that second fill/ending to the verse riff.... The 5p4p0 0h2 one. Anyways just for kicks the way I play it is...

e--------------------------------------------------------------------B--------------------------------------------------------------------G--------------------------------------------------------------------D-----------------7~-------------------------0-----------------------A---5h7-7-7-7-7-7-0~-5h7-7-7-7-7-7-5p4p0-0h2-------------------------E---0---0-0-0-0-0----0---0-0-0-0-0-----------------------------------

Repeat. I think this dudes tab is the way Clapton plays it but I like this as much- remember that there's 100 ways to play any song. Anyways this is the type I'd use variation on anyways, so it's good to know alternate ways to play the riff.

I found this very helpful like you Guild. Especially when you go from the riff you mention back into the chords. Playing the 2 up on D to make the A chord sets you up for the next progression. Really genius Clapton. He could make something simple sound so hot. I find setting up my amp hard for this song.
