    Difficulty Level:
  • August 09, 2007 not for everybody

    the disadvantage of this books is that you do not get the tab of the complete songs. for example the outro lick that ends 'strange brew' is not there. no solo for 'white room'. one song has only the solo. the advantage ofcourse is the cd which has slowed down...

    tracks for easy grasping - but note that clapton's solos with the cream are very song oriented and not that difficult to figure - unlike his work with john mayall. so even if you do not have the slowed down tracks you can make do. atleast that's my opinion - now i wish i had bought 'those were the days' instead.

  • June 16, 2006 Creamy Delicious!

    This has everything a Signature Licks title should have...great song selection, SLOWED DOWN examples for 95% of the tracks (a big plus!), and interesting tidbits of info about the song, which gear the artist played, etc. Well worth the money. Now...when is someone going to write a tab...

    book for the Royal Albert Hall gigs?....

  • September 17, 2000 THIS IS AWESOME!

    This book includes classic Cream licks, from songs such as, Sunshine of Your Love and I Feel Free. Unfortunately, this doesn't always include the whole song, if that's what your looking for. The CD included makes this book perfect for beginners too because all of the songs are...

    played note-by-note slowly on every other track.
