The worlds first super group!
Cream was a 60s British Super group (all members were previously famous) that Eric Clapton joined after John Mayhall and The Bluesbreakers.
Creams sound could be described as a hybrid of blues, pop, and psychedelic rock. Their hits include Crossroads, Sunshine Of Your Love, Strange Brew, and White Room.
Cream was a phenomenon that giants like Jimi Hendrix looked up to during their active time, as well as having inspiring countless bands since.
Jimi even interrupted Hey Joe in favor of Sunshine Of Your Love on a TV show, having found out earlier in the day that Cream had split up.
Sunshine Of Your Love – Chords & Guitar Lessons
This one guitar version of Sunshine Of Your Love is a combination of Creams original and Spanky Wilson’s cover.
Using the main riff as a starting point over this blues progression, the I chord has sometimes been extended to a dom7#9. The solo? We learn it note for note!
Sunshine Of Your Love – Lyrics
It’s getting near dawn, when lights close their tired eyes.
I’ll soon be with you my love, to give you my dawn surprise.
I’ll be with you darling soon,
I’ll be with you when the stars start falling.
