Lesson notes

John Fogerty wrote Green River and it was the title song of their 3rd album, released in 1969. The real Green River that John spoke of was Putah Creek, near Winters, California, and was a place the Fogerty family would spend time during the summer when the boys were young. Most Creedence songs follow a pretty simple formula as far as instrumentation and arrangement. The three-piece rhythm section keeps a rock-steady beat driving with very regular accents. The lesson also includes tab to a Chord Solo arrangement, similar to the way Neil plays it in the Play Through segment.
