Learning some Eric Clapton songs is always a good thing to do for any guitar player. You don’t have to be into Blues. Not all his songs are blues songs.

He makes playing the guitar look so easy.

Sunshine Chords

Some of these aren’t chords they are octaves. You hear Jazz players use these quite often but they are in other forms of music too just not as often as with Jazz guitarist’s.
