Product Information

Layla from MTV Unplugged - Digital Sheet Music
From the All Media Guide: By the time Eric Clapton launched his solo career with the release of his self-titled debut album in mid-1970, he was long established as one of the world's major rock stars due to his group affiliations — the Yardbirds, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream, and Blind Faith — affiliations that had demonstrated his claim to being the best rock guitarist of his generation. That it took Clapton so long to go out on his own, however, was evidence of a degree of reticence unusual for one of his stature. And his debut album, though it spawned the Top 40 hit "After Midnight," was typical of his self-effacing approach: it was, in effect, an album by the group he had lately been featured in, Delaney & Bonnie & Friends. Not surprisingly, before his solo debut had even been released, Clapton had retreated from his solo stance, assembling from the D&B&F ranks the personnel for a group, Derek and the Dominos, with which he played for most of 1970. Clapton was largely inactive in 1971 and 1972, due to heroin addiction, but he performed a comeback concert at the Rainbow Theatre in London on January 13, 1973, resulting in the album Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert (September 1973). But Clapton did not launch a sustained solo career until July 1974, when he released 461 Ocean Boulevard, which topped the charts and spawned the number one single "I Shot the Sheriff."

missing piano coda

This arrangement ends with the lyrics and is missing the instrumental (primarily piano) coda that forms the song's famous second movement.

meh..

If this is supposed to be the acoustic version, there needs to be a swing rythm with little piano fills and alot of attitude. If this is supposed to be the electric version, where is the end part? This is a good skeleton of the song. There is alot more to it in parts, but if you enjoy figuring out the solos and fills, it is a good guide line, that has served me well.
