As the Years Go Passing By

Blues Notes
As the Years Go Passing By

Eric Clapton created some of greatest guitar riffs in rock, but he was stuck when he came to ‘Layla’.

Cielito Lindo (Lovely Sweet One)

Chances are you've belted out your share of “Ay,ay, ay, ay” choruses in that timeless Mexican song about a lovely lady with dark eyes. Everyone knows ‘Cielito Lindo’, right – even if you've never been to Mexico. And even if you have no idea what “Sierra Morena” means in the first line.
