He means the acoustic version of Layla, methinks.

Just play it slowly until you get it down, then increase the speed on your metronome.

Just in case some don't know, the famous riff in Layla was played by Duane Allman and not Clapton.
It's Only Rock and Roll, But I like It

The acoustic one is esay, needs practice only, whereas the electric one you might wanna do it very slowly first, then slowly repeating the same thi8ng over and over again, each time at a quicker pace. Don't bother training every day cause you'll get better if you train on alternate days.

my best reccomendation is keep trying and if you cant get there try something else. keep getting better and try to learn it properly in a few months time. if you just cant get it, chances are its because you simply arent good enough yet. i stress the word yet.

I'm pretty sure Duane just played slide on "Layla."
