I've got this song here that I want to learn well enough so that I can improvise with my own little licks and such while I play it.

I think it's in the key of E, but I can't tell what scale he is using; if it is minor or major pentatonic?

Any more experienced players that might be able to help? If nothing else, you'll get to listen to a cool song!


E Minor.
As for the actual... rhythm backing stuff, it's just twelve-bar.

Edit: Oh yeah, and this has been one of my favorite Clapton vids for a while, great choice...
Gotta finish my work, then play some grooves, so I can turn my room into a house of blues...

Yep definitely E minor. He's just jamming on the E blues pentatonic, adding in some chord tones from the A and B chords in the 12 bar.

Pretty standard stuff, but he makes it all Eric Claptony.
There may be times when it is impossible to prevent injustice, but there should never be a time when we fail to protest it.
