Eric Clapton – Run So Far tab

RUN SO FAR
Eric Clapton

from the album "Journeyman"


Transcribed by Steve Garner (s_garner@hotmail.com)


NOTES: This song was written by Eric's friend George Harrison,
       and it appears on Eric's 1989 "Journeyman" album. The song
       has several guitar parts, including a rhythm guitar playing
       the chords, a lead guitar playing the fills, and a slide
       guitar played by George Harrison. I have transcribed the
       rhythm guitar part and some of the leads/fills.
