Lesson notes

Fortunate Son was another popular song by Creedence Clearwater Revival from their album "Willy And The Poor Boys" released in 1969. This song always reminds me of Forrest Gump where it's featured in the movie. It has a very iconic introduction that's very rhythmic oriented and has a great groove. The two notes it plays in the intro are very powerful and a really good example of how effective just a couple of notes can be if placed in the right spot. The rest of the song revolves around power chords. These build a solid groove that also leaves space for the singer or melody to take over.
