This is the full guitar lesson for Hey Hey by Eric Clapton.
Hey Hey was originally written by Big Bill Broonzy in 1951 and Eric Clapton’s cover of the song can be found on his massively successful live album ‘Eric Clapton Unplugged’, recorded in 1992.
The song is a straight up 12 bar blues in E and it’s a terrific one to learn for aspiring fingerstyle blues players. Although the chord structure is very simple and repetitive throughout, it’s certainly not an easy tune to master. It’s fast, demanding on the right hand and moves all over the neck. Having said, that once you do get it together it’s a lot of fun to play and it sounds fantastic!
Alright, let’s pick up our guitars and learn how to play Hey Hey!
