Lesson notes

One of John Fogerty’s last hits with his band before his brother Tom left, Have You Ever Seen The Rain is a straightforward strumming song on most fronts, and we take a look at the easy way to play it, as well as dressing it up with a few runs and licks. It only uses four chords in the key of C but the frills we explore include working in the bass runs in the intro, playing the descending bass line in the Chorus, and the sixteenth-note bounce that kicks the song off with a bang.
