This is the basic outline of eric johnsons cliffs of dover.

If you want to heavy it up i suggest turning these chords into power chords (D turns 
into D5) and ignor the Am and play it as an A5

If you want to make it plainer, then turn the E7 into a standard E. I put the E7 in 
myself to jazz if up.

If you want to jazz it up, then add chord variations. (Am to Am7 or E7to E7#9) Do the 
same to blues it up (but add in a shuffling bass note :))

If you want to solo over this song then just play a G Major Pentationic Blues scale over 
it. (Same as an Eminor pentatonic Blues but with C as your main note)

Well thankyou. Please Rate :)
