Learn CCR Guitar Songs
Credence Clearwater Revival is one of the top 10 biggest Rock and Roll bands ever. The band recorded songs and performed under different names between 1959-1967, when they settled on the name Credence Clearwater Revival.
CCR was composed of John Fogerty, Tom Fogerty, Stu Cook, and Doug Clifford. They were known for hits such as Fortunate Son (1969), Have You Ever Seen The Rain (1970), and the all-time favorite Proud Mary, which combined steadily strummed guitars, a flawless rhythm section, and male gospel harmonies.
John (the lead vocalist and guitarist) was the driving force. A Vietnam vet himself, his songs rarely talked about romantic elements. Instead, he focuses on social and political issues. The band would record and perform together for five years, from 1967-1972, selling over 28 million records. Most of their songs are still hits on classic rock radio in the U.S.
