This is the full guitar lesson for Signe by Eric Clapton.

Clapton wrote Signe in 1992 after the tragic death of his son Conor. Clapton opened with the song for his MTV unplugged live album and played the piece as a beautiful ensemble with fellow guitarist Andy Fairweather Low.

Signe is fairly demanding to play, mainly because of the tricky syncopation, but it really is a lot of fun once you’ve mastered it.

Alright, let’s pick up our guitars and learn how to play Signe!

Signe Guitar Lesson

Really the intro is just two chords (A and A/E) but the rhythm is pretty busy. Make sure that you get this section of the song mastered before moving on, as it’ll make learning the rest of it much easier.

Lesson 2

Often times in Signe the chords are changing off the beat. This will likely be tricky. It may be easiest for you to just try and feel the rhythm, as counting may trip you up.
