Layla Guitar Lesson

In this free guitar lesson, I’m going to show you how to approach the end jam outro of Layla by Derek and the Dominos when using open e tuning slide guitar. This is in the style of Derek Trucks and Duane Allman played in the key of C Major.

To learn more about playing the Major Scale check out my Slide Guitar Open E Tuning Course.


  1. Great lesson….Really shows some possibilities…The chord progression is a little more involved than just C-F….But I guess it’s OK to jam over

  2. Yeah there’s a few more chords during the bridge section of the outro I guess is how you would classify it. Am – Dm – G – C. The only other chord is the Bb chord. Using the C Major scale will be safe to use during the entire section other than the Bb. I go over one way of how to adjust to the Bb in the video. There are others.

    You could view it as C Mixolydian over the Bb. chord, but you must change back to C Major. Although sometimes you can throw it all out the window if it sounds good!
