Cream Style Riff Using Clapton Box

By Darren DeFranco


Hey guys,

The Clapton box is built off of the lower portion of the pentatonic scale, so many bands use that area to create some low, grungy riffs. In the 60′s, Cream created some of the best riffs of all time, many of which used the Clapton box. We’ll show you a riff that demonstrates how the legendary band might have used this box.

Have fun, and enjoy the riff!


Master this riff and you’ll be good to go.
