Key To The Highway
Artist:Eric Clapton and B B King
Album:Riding with the King(2000(I think))
Song:Key to the Highway

Hi, men! It's Mr Clapton's part of the song, I think it's quite
useful to learn, 'cause you're able to play your own solos on it,
instead of B B King's. So let's start

The chords are so simple:A E7 F#m D7/F#m A E/E7 A

The next is a rythm idea
e|-/9-9-9-9-9-9-9-----------10101010-----2-2-2-2-|
B|-/10101010101010----------9-9-9-9------2-2-2-2-|
G|-/9-9-9-9-9-9-9-----------9-9-9-9------2-2-2-2-|
D|----------------7/11-10-9-9-9-9-9------4-4-4-4-|
A|---------------------------------------4-4-4-4-|
E|-----------------------------------0-1-2-2-2-2-|
    A                       E7           F#m

it sounds so acoustic in the song, so (please) DO NOT USE ANY OVERDRIVE!!!

Intro lead(but I prefer improvisation)

e|----------------------------12b14-12b14-12-10----------------|
B|-12b14-12b14-12b14-12b14-12-------------------13-12----12----|
G|----------------------------------------------------14----11-|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------12----------------------12-11-10-----------|
B|------12b14-12b14-15----12b14-12-------10-------------13h14-----|
G|-11-14---------------------------11-14-11-14----------------14--|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------|
B|-7h8-5---------5-|
G|-------7-5-5h6---|
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|

(b-bend, h-hammer on)

it's not the whole thing, but i think, it's perfect to practice,
to own the blues feeling, and ya can create your own Key to the Highway

About the artist behind Key To The Highway:

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".
