    It’s much easier and sounds good in F. You just have to transpose it -4

  2. Is this the real Eric Clapton or just a wanna be

  3. If you have problems with chords in original you can tune the uke to canadian tuning (ADF#B/H)

  4. thanks! ericclapton for the tab

  5. ericclapton

    for the beyond the door play Em B Dm E Am D7 G

  6. for the “beyond that door” part it is completely wrong. totally threw me off. horrible.
