FORTUNATE SON 🔷CCR 🔷Guitar Lesson – Beginner

November 7, 2019

Hi, I’m Bobby crispy this video is printing my guitar lesson series So today I’ll show how to play fortunate son by CCR So I’ll play it first Then I’ll play show house waiting up for not using tabs Okay, so it plays an intro first there it is Okay, I split made played mainly on the 4Th and 2nd strings Okay, so 4th string slide up to the 9th fret second-string a threat let’s light [up] for the 4th string 7th fret 2nd string 6 fret Okay, that’s the fourth string third fret slide up to the fifth second string fifth fret The [fourth] string [second] fret slide [up] the third second string Third fret into the fifth string first fret [oh] six string top string third fret [again] slowly you Okay, now the verse okay the rhythm after [it’s] song is like this So it’s one two and three [and] four in so many of the feel later on you can get a little more eccentrically Okay, so I’ll play it first [ah] first verse Okay, so that’s g top string 6 fret top string third fret It’s a power chord basically then f which is the top string first fret Then to the C. Which is this death string third fret? then two back to G top string third fret and That’s the course I Mean so that’s the first Okay, the chorus is almost the same. It’s this is it here Okay, same as before g power chord top string third fret [goes] to d. Which is the fifth string fourth fret And slide down two frets to see fifth string third fret then [2g] top string third fret Okay And now the bridge at 1 minute 18 minutes in the song I’ll play first you Okay, that’s on the second and third strings Okay, so slide up to third string seventh fret and 2nd string 6 fret Then down to down on fret on each Which is the third string 6 fret [fifth] fifth fret on the second string? Then with the same pattern slide down So that’s the second string [first] fret and third string second, right? slide up two frets To the second string third fret and the fourth string. I’m sorry the third string for threat And that’s pretty much the song look. I hope this lesson has been helpful and thanks for watching

    Bobby, why didn't you do the song I asked for? Okay, I'll post it on every new video then, which the song is Learning to Fly by Pink Floyd.

    That's awesome. A fan made a request and you pretty much instantly made a tutorial. That is cool, really shows you care.

  • Reply mojojasons February 14, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    Hey, Bobby… Great lesson but you're actually playing it completely wrong. The tuning for the song is DGCFAD. That's how he is able to get all of those pull offs to open strings. Do yourself a favor and watch a video of Fogerty playing it live and it's plain as day.. The guitar is tuned a whole step down.

    I am self-taught (aside from some basic lessons for open chors WAY in the beginning) and rely on tutorials like yours, Marty, etc. and for some reason, as simple as this song is, I could never get it. not sure why until I realized I was playing all open chords instead of power chords. Thank you for your tutotial. New fave. Subscribed!
