Today we are going to learn how to play "Telephone Blues" as recorded by John Mayall's Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton in 1966. This is a classic, slow-burn 12 bar blues with super tasty and iconic Clapton licks throughout. This is an excellent study in blues soloing and call and response phrasing with the vocals.

In this tutorial we'll learn the intro, the verses, the solos and the outro. The song is in the key of D and is in 4/4 (triplet feel), with a quarter note of 60 BPM.
