Unplugged Album
==========================
-Eric Clapton (Unplugged)-
==========================
The hard part of this song is to get the timing right.
Start by playing the chords only when listening to the CD.
Then, add the bass notes, and finally the hammer-on's and pull-off's.
I don't remember the exact order of the parts, but you'll find out.
(Try: Intro, Part 1, 1, 2, 2, 1, 1, 3, 3, 1, 1, End )

Before You Accuse Me
(Obvously a 12 bar blues in E )

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
You say I've been spending my money on other women
You been taking money from someone else
I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago
I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago
Well your mother said "Son"
"Don't call my daughter no more"
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
You say I've been spending my money on other women
You been taking money from someone else
Come back home baby, try my love one more time
Come back home baby, try my love one more time
If I don't go on and quit you
I'm gonna lose my mind
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
You say I've been spending my money on other women
You been taking money from someone else

========================================================================
Hey hey - Eric Clapton (Unplugged)

This is the 12-bar blues pattern that repeats all through the song.
I don't think it's all correct, but it sounds pretty good to me.
The vocal part follows the same pattern, only simpler.
(basically just the bass string and small fill-ins)
This is not to hard to figure out if you listen to the CD

Version 1
Tears In Heaven
by Eric Clapton
Verse:
] A E/G# ]F#m A] D A ] E ]
Would you know my name if I saw you in Heaven

] A E/G# ]F#m A] D A ] E ]
Would it be the same if I saw you in Heaven
] F#m ] C#/E# ] Em ] F# ]
I must be strong and carry on
] Bm ]E7sus E7 ] A E/G# ]
Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven
] F#m A ] D E7sus E7] A ]
Would you hold my hand, if I saw you in heaven
Would you help me stand, if I saw you in heaven
I'll find my way through night and day
`Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven.

Bridge:
] C G/B ] Am D ] G D ] Em D G ]
Time can bring you down Time can bend your knees
] C G/B ] Am D ] G D ] E ]
Time can break your heart Have you beggin please beggin please
Instrumental of first two lines, then:
] F#m ] C#/E# ] Em ] F# ]
Beyond the door, there's peace for sure
] Bm ]E7sus E7 ] A E/G# ]
and I know there'll be no more tears in heaven.
] F#m A ] D E7sus E7] A ]
repeat 1st verse
] Bm ]E7sus E7 ] A E/G# ]
Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven
] F#m A ] D E7sus E7] A ]
Fingerpick it [2 beats per pattern]. There are a couple of places where
achord
only gets 1 beat -Just squeeze the chord pluck the 4 strings
simultaneously.

Finger both the E/G# and the C#/E# chords in a open D chord shape
with the thumb wrapped around to the 6th string. Like this:
C#/E# The E/G# is the same thing played at the
--X-X------ 4th fret
T ] ] 1 ] 2
-----------
] ] ] ] 3 ]
>Chorus:
>] F#m ] C#/E# ] Em ] F# ]
> I must be strong and carry on
The Em sounds much better if you add a C# with your pinky
(2nd fret at the B string)
==========================================================
Version 2
Tears In Heaven (Eric Clapton)
Below are my attempt to reproduce the two main riffs in Tears
of Heaven off Eric Clapton's unplugged album. There is really
only one figuring which is a reach which is the A to Esus2.
___________
]_]_]_]_]_]
]_]_1_1_1_1
]_]_]_]_]_]
2_]_]_3_]_]
] ] ] ] 4 ]
Play the A as a partial barre add other three fingers to construct the
Esus2.

This is the basic lick. Note that there's no pick
involved and all bass stuff (Low E and A strings) is
done with the thumb, and all other stuff is either picked
simultaneously with the fingers, or down strummed with
the fingernails. (Not all the notes are here - it's
strickly a feel thing, and I had no idea someone would
ever request this song - I thought I was the only one
who loved this song, so I came to work unprepared.)
First verse:
E F#m7 C#m7 F#m7 G#m7 F#m7 B A
I must be, invisi--ble. No one knows me.
E F#m7 C#m7 F#m7 D A E
I have crawled down dead-end streets on my hands and knees.
On E here, go to "intro-lick", twice.
Second verse:
I was born with a raging thirst, Hunger to be free
But I've learned thru the years, Don't encourage me
On E here, go to "intro-lick" ONCE and then right to
Chorus:
E F#m7 B C#m7
Cause I'm a lonely stranger here
F#m7 G#m7 C#m7 E7 (C#m7 and E7 are packed in one measure.)
well be----yond my da---ys (No clue on the words here.)
A7 A7Dim E F#m7
I don't know what's going on so
D A E
I'll be on my way *** 4x
Third Verse
When I walk, stay behind.Don't get close to me.
Cause it's sure to end in tears. So let me leave
4th Verse
Some will say I may agree take a look then walk away
Cause thats alright with me
Chorus:
*** On E here, "intro-lick" again, this time 4 times I don't know.
(I'm getting tired, so briefly, it's 2 more verses just the
same as before, and then the same chorus, followed by - you
guessed it - the "intro-lick" out to the end, which, I believe,
is solo'd over using the E minor pentatonic scale, but, knowing
EC, he probably uses some "tasty" notes along the way.)

Once I lived a life of a millionaire,
Dm A7 Dm
Spend all my money, didn't have any care.
F F# C/G A7
Took all my friends out for a mighty good time,
D7 G7
We bought bootleg liquor, champagne and wine.
Then I began to fall so low,
Lost all my good friend, and nowhere to go.
If I get my hands on a dollar again,
I'll hang on to it 'til that ol' eagle grins
Because nobody loves you,
When you're down and out,
In your pocket not one penny,
And as for friends you don't have many.
When you get back on your feet again,
Everybody wants to be your long lost friend.
I said it's strange without any doubt,
Nobody knows you when you're down and out.

I got the blues from my baby down by the San Francisco Bay,

(Where) the ocean liners, they aren't so far away.
F C run1 A
I didn't mean to treat her so bad, she was the best girl I ever have had,
D G7
Said goodbye, had to take a cry (?), I wanna lay down and die.

C F C C7
I ain't got a nickel and I ain't got a lousy dime.
F E7
If she don't come back, I think I'm gonna lose my mind.
F C fill1 A
If I ever get back to stay, it's gonna be another brand new day,
D G7 C G7
Walkin' with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay.
(Sweet harmonica & kazoo solos :)
Sittin' down lookin' from my back door, wondrin' which way to go,
The woman I'm so crazy about, she don't love me no more.
Think I'll catch me a freight train, 'cause I'm feelin' blue,
I'll ride all the way to the end of the line, thinkin' only of you.
Meanwhile, livin' in the city, thinkin' I'll go insane,
Thought I heard my baby's voice, the way she used to call my name.
If I ever get back to stay, it's gonna be another brand new day,
Walkin' with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay, hey hey,
Walkin' with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay,
Yeah, walkin' with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay.
(Ends on a C7)
for the ending, just repeat D, G7, C, and A7 until the final

Wonderful Tonight
by Eric Clapton


G D/F# C D G D/F# C D

It's late in the evening

She's wondering what clothes to wear

She puts on her make up

And brushes her long blonde hair

And then she asks me
G Bm/F# Em
Do I look alright
C D G D/F# C D
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go a party

And everyone turns to see

And then she asks me
G Bm/F# Em
Do you feel alright
C D G
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight

C
I feel wonderful
D G Bm/F# Em
Because I see the love light in your eyes
C D
And the wonder of it all
C D
Is that you just don't realize
G D/F# C D G D/F# C D
How much I love you

G D/F#
It's time to go home now
C D
And I've got an aching head
G D/F#
So I give her the car keys
C D
She helps me to bed
C D
And then I tell her
G Bm/F# Em
As I turn out the light
C D G Bm/F# Em Em/D
I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
C D G D/F# C D
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight

[D7]I mean [B7] [E7]when your [A7]down and out [D]

I get lost in alibis
Sadness can't prevail
Everybody knows strong love
Can't fail (lick 2)

Don't be pretending about how you feel
Don't be pretending that your love is real

A E5
Pretending, pretending

Wonderful Tonight
Eric Clapton

G D/F# C D G D/F# C D

G D/F#
It's late in the evening
C D
She's wondering what clothes to wear
G D/F#
She puts on her make up
C D
And brushes her long blonde hair
C D
And then she asks me
G Bm/F# Em
Do I look alright
C D G D/F# C D
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight


G D/F#
We go a party
C D
And everyone turns to see
G D/F#
This beautiful lady
C D
That's walking around with me
C D
And then she asks me
G Bm/F# Em
Do you feel alright
C D G
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight


C
I feel wonderful
D G Bm/F# Em
Because I see the love light in your eyes
C D
And the wonder of it all
C D
Is that you just don't realize
G D/F# C D G D/F# C D
How much I love you


G D/F#
It's time to go home now
C D
And I've got an aching head
G D/F#
So I give her the car keys
C D
She helps me to bed
C D
And then I tell her
G Bm/F# Em
As I turn out the light
C D G Bm/F# Em Em/D
I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
C D G D/F# C D G D/F# C D G
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight
