This is a great songbook for the Clapton fan, who would like to get all the chords to his songs. You would also use this songbook for all the lyrics. It would be better if the binding was in the form of the plastic rings. It is difficult to keep the book open to read, and play from unless you break the binding.
Highly recommended.

If you're like me, you'll find this book really handy. The format includes only the chords and the lyrics. I'm an experienced guitarist, so I only want the bare bones of a song. I rarely have to turn the pages since most songs fit on a couple of pages (lyrics are hard for me to remember for some reason). The chord changes are placed above the lyrics, so if you know the song, it's easy to make the changes at the right time. So far, all of the songs I've played are in the correct key, but I've only played a dozen or so from this book. The Chord Songbook series has been a real productive one for me. I love 'em. Especially the Beatles Complete Chord Songbook. I've learned more about pop song structure from these books than any other material. Chord diagrams are at the top the every song title page, in case you need them. Songs are in the correct key unless a capo is required. While I don't use these songbooks to learn new material very often, I do use them to play songs I'm familiar with. So, if you want to play songs without having to turn pages for lyrics and tabs, you will probably like these. Happy guitaring y'all.

Great play along. Clapton's chording can be difficult to interpret precisely and they have done a great job. I love the format. I also have the Beatles books and am looking forward to CSN in2014.

It is too bad that there isn't as much information shown about the music in this book as great marketing of CDs provides for some popular items. I recently heard Eric Clapton play in Saint Paul, and I'm sure thousands of people know a lot of the songs in this book, but after a concert, I enjoy looking at the book to see if anything that is down in black and white makes more sense than it did when I heard it. My best example would be the song "Layla." In the book, it is written in a key of D flat, with a few changes for the verses, chorus, and instrumental at the end. The music in the book doesn't try to show everything going on at the same time, so it never seems to be as complicated as the song itself. After all these years of trying to put the opening notes together, I have finally heard this song often enough so that the quick run at the beginning is just what I'm thinking when I try to play it. People who can't get to that point will not enjoy this book very much, but people who really don't know if they could put a few parts of this song together from a bunch of notes ought to make the effort. One of the verses starts out, "I tried to give you consolation, . . ." but people who really know this song probably remember the line, "before I finally go insane," better. Having this book might not be good for everybody, but being able to play this stuff is great, as far as I'm concerned. Give it a try.
