Great lesson, I'm a bit confused, though. You keep mentioning using the A minor pentatonic, but you seem to be playing in C, so wouldn't it technically be the C major pentatonic scale? I realize that they're the exact same notes in the same position, a minor being the relative minor of C. Hmm, I think I just answered my own question. Anyway, thanks for the lesson!

@xscotty1990 Fogerty uses everything from Teles to Lesters to Ernie Balls to PRS's. Google "john fogerty rig" and you'll find a great website with pics of his gear.

To those offended by my use of the word "annoying"--all I meant is that this song has been played so many times on the radio that those people who are sick of it might overlook the great guitar work. Of course I like the song or I wouldn't have chosen it. It's Fogerty/CCR--of course it's great!

Ditto the comments that you are soooo good at explaining this stuff that I have never found so clearly done anywhere else. Thank you!!

THANKS!! Been dyin' to learn some Fogerty style. The moveable chords shapes are confusing to me. I know regular chords, power chords, pentatonic scales, but when you watch live performances I'm always confused as to what the heck they are playing when they do chords higher up on the neck (besides bar chords). This is starting to make sense!

What is your AC4TV head attached to? Looks like a custom cabinet?

Yes, it is a custom 1x10 loaded with a Weber Alnico Silver Ten, perfect match for the AC4.

Actually, Fogerty used LesPaul Customs, Gibson ES175 (early albums) a lot. Not just the Ricky 325.
