Eric Clapton Cream tabs

Bell Bottom Blues guitar tab

From: "Dr. Nick Riveria" 
Subject: Bell Bottom Blues Lick

OK, this is my first attempt at posting something, so I figured that I'd 
start easy.  This is the signature lick that Clapton does in Bell Bottom 
Blues on the album "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs," by Derek and 
the Dominos.  There are actually three guitars in this song, one rhythm, 
and two lead.

Guitar 1, rhythm:
     F              F         G
E------------------------------------------------I
B----1--------------1---------3------------------I
G----2--------------2---------4------------------I
D----3--------------3---------5------------------I
A----3--------------3---------5------------------I
E----1--------------1---------3------------------I

Guitar 2, Lead 1:
E--13----------------------10--------------------I
B-----13-------11---------------11vib------------I
G------------------12^full-----------------------I
D------------------------------------------------I
A------------------------------------------------I
E------------------------------------------------I

Guitar 3, Lead 2:
E--13-13-------11--------------------------------I
B--13-13-------11----------13--------------------I
G------------------12^full&release(12)----(12)\--I <- Slide down
D------------------------------------------------I
A------------------------------------------------I
E------------------------------------------------I

And there it is.  I don't have the time to post the solo now, but most 
of it uses these notes, with a few others, along with pinch harmonics.  
Good Luck with this great song.  If you have questions, feel free to
