Lesson notes

Down On The Corner is a fun song by Creedence Clearwater Revival off of their 1969 album "Willy And The Poor Boys". This song is partly based on a single string rhythmic pattern, where the main motif rings through the simple riff. This is accompanied by the rhythm guitar part holding it down with chords, filling in the space similarly to how an organ player would. There's a unique interlude that uses double stops that are usually played on upper strings, but in this case it's in the lower to mid-range strings, giving a similar effect but in the low register. This gives you an interesting build up of low frequency sections that open back up into the main riff, ultimately making this a really dynamic song that's interesting to play.
