G#                         Cm7b5                  (adlib G# Blues lick after every line)
I want a little girl, who loves me a lot
C#m                                       C#m7
You know that I would give her, everything that I got

G#7   F#7              F7   Bb          D#      G#  A G#      
Say, I want a little girl, to fall in love with me

Riff notes; I recommend G# Blues in the forth position, 
Begin the lick on 1st or 7th degree (maybe on the 4th), 
make sure to fill with 1,4, 5 and 7 degree notes 
and end on root or 5th depending on the verse.

Note B:  You can add harmonic motion by adding a slide one half step 
to A or A9 then back to the original chord (in this case G# or G#9).
I you choose the G#9 find a position not to far up the neck. . .I 
find that it is not as warm in terms of base.

This by no means is the exact guitar version as played by Andy F.Low.  
Most of the chords are presented by their quality; therefore, I have omitted 
flattened / sharpened 5th, 7th  and 9th chord voicings.  Although I believe 
that this version is 95%, there is definitely room for improvement and personal 
additions.  I just want to thank all of you that post;   you definitely have 
made my life more enjoyable with your hard work and selflessness.  
I really hope this version brings you a lot of applause and truck loads of 
shits and giggles.

About the artist behind I Want A Little Girl:

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 30 March 1945), is a English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer. He is one of the most successful musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries,[1] garnering an unprecedented three inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Yardbirds, Cream, and solo). Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time[2], Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"[3] and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[4]

Although Clapton's musical style has varied throughout his career, it has always remained rooted in the blues. Clapton is credited as an innovator in several phases of his career, which have included blues-rock (with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds) and psychedelic rock (with Cream). Clapton has also achieved great chart success in genres ranging from Delta blues (Me and Mr. Johnson) to pop ("Change the World") and reggae (Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff"). Clapton also achieved fame with Derek and the Dominos through the hit song "Layla".
