I completely agree with you Kale! Can’t go wrong with CCR.

Fun tune. Most CCR songs are a blast to play and sing. It looks like this one is no exception.

I’m sure you will hear more Slinger renditions of CCR, Brian. Thanks for sharing the encouraging words on John Fogerty. There is something wrong when you can’t play your own songs! Glad to hear he can now.

You got it Uncle John! Another two CCR picks for Monday, one will be a new one for us. I love expanding our SEE SEE ARE play list.

You have great ears A.D.! I would love to tell you I am experimenting with some effects, but sadly I am not. I use the same Zoom set up every week, so any differences in sound are internet/ connectivity related. We don’t have any Grand Funk Railroad songs in our songbook … yet! Any suggested Slingerworthy tunes?

Good to hear this one on cbg! I read that John Fogerty finally got CCR song rights back from their scheming ex-manager, he once sued Fogerty for sounding too much like CCR? Good to see that miracles still happen these days!!

Glad to hear it James! And I appreciate the kind words. CCR songs are fun to play and are frequent choices at our Zoom meetings.
