Clapton Box

By Eric Hufschmid


Hey guys,

Today we’re learning another extension we can build off of the pentatonic scale, this time it’s the Clapton box. Eric Clapton often used this area to create some of his most timeless riffs, so he has the honor of owning this pentatonic extension. The Clapton box is built off of the lower portion of the pentatonic scale, thus giving it a chunkier, grungier sound perfect for heavy riffs. Today, we’ll just show you the box and then in future lessons we’ll learn some riffs that use it.

Have fun, and good luck.


Take some time to learn where the box is relative to a pentatonic scale and practice transitioning into and out of the Clapton box.
