Tears In Heaven is a single from the album Rush by Eric Clapton.
However, most people recognize the live version from the Unplugged Album.
Tears In Heaven chords form a genius progression that use small variations and slash chords to keep the harmonic interest on top.
Start your lesson by watching the video and try playing along with it. You will soon find how massive this tune is.
One of the genius harmonic tricks Tears In Heaven use is the key change from A major to G major.
Tears in Heaven Key Change
This key change makes us feel as if there is hope considering: “…time can bring you down…”.
This concept repeats itself when we move back to A major.
A double jeopardy key change!
Eric Clapton Licks
Clapton’s main strength as a player are all those little tasteful embellishments he constantly add throughout Tears In Heaven’s chord progression.
What he does is adding notes from the modes around the shapes.
My version should be a close replica to what Clapton might play if he performed it on his own, remember, the unplugged version is a two guitar arrangement.
