John Mayall's Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton Guitar Tab

Eric Clapton is undoubtedly one of the most influential guitarists in rock history, with a resume that includes the Yardbirds, Cream, Derek & the Dominos, and a longstanding solo career. And as important as his work in all those groups is, it's his heavy blues on John Mayall's iconic 1966 Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton album that reigns supreme in many guitar circles.
Intended to be a showcase for the young Clapton, the album comprises primarily covers of blues classics by Otis Rush, Freddie King, and Robert Johnson. Armed with his 1960 Gibson Les Paul Standard plugged into a Marshall Bluesbreaker amp, Clapton rose to the challenge, setting the bar for how rock guitar should sound and be played—a standard still chased and adhered to nearly 50 years later.
We've just posted guitar tab for 10 of the album's 12 tracks, including must-know songs "All Your Love (I Miss Loving)," "Hide Away," "Ramblin' on My Mind," and "Steppin' Out."
