Eric Clapton: After Midnight - - (Table view)

Other recordings of After Midnight:

Composed by J J Cale

Eric Clapton has recorded two very different versions of the song. The first, from the Eric Clapton album is a fast and restless - too fast to my taste. There he plays the chords C - F - Eb. On the xxx, he plays more relaxed, and closer to J J Cale's original. There he plays C - Eb - F, or actually with Power Chords - C5 - Eb5 - F5. There is also an occational Cm7 in there. Personally, I prefer to play the song in G, with the chords G - Bb - C. I think J J Cale plays the song in G, but I have not listened to his recording for a very long time, so I am not really sure.
