3 Chord Club: Creedence Clearwater Revival

Posted on: May 21st, 2010 by dville

Today the 3 Chord Club rocks out with Oakland, California’s own Creedence Clearwater Revival. At the 3 Chord Club we choose three songs from a specific artist, label or genre of music that we’ll learn by ear. All the songs will contain three chords or less! Since you know the song only has one to three chords, try to figure out the changes, or chord progression by ear. Here’s a hint, most of the time the chords will be the I-IV & V or V7 chords. In the Key of C, that’s C-F-G or G7.

CCR sold has sold over 26 million records worldwide. The reason? Catchy hooks and a lot of three-chord songs! Note the song examples will be in various different keys. Just listen to the structure of the chord progression and you’ll be able to transpose the song to the key that fits you (C is a good place to start). For extra fun try to determine the original key!

Bad Moon Rising

(Hint: V-IV-I
-Last line of chorus)

Down On The Corner
(Hint: Chorus I-IV-I-V7-I)

Up Around The Bend
(Hint: Chorus IV-I-V-IV-I-V)

Songs presented are for educational purposes only and used under the fair use doctrine of United States copyright law.
