Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


Old Love  Eric Clapton

Here's the intro to the original Old Love found on the Journeyman CD.
Use clean tone and reverb for the rhythm parts, which are of course played
on a Strat with one of the warmer pickups (probably neck). I'm not sure what
Eric uses for the lead parts, but a bridge pickup with a bit of distortion
should do. Enjoy.
