    It's the cadence of a horses gallup. Listen to MANY ripping shreading bad ass hard rock tunes. It's just like a horses Gallup. It's the perfect guitar riff. Freaking FUN as hell to double kick to while playing the drums. Or just slamming the skins with a single kick peddle but in cadence to that riff or beat timing. It's my all time favorite riff to rip to on my kit. That and shreading solo'ing lol. Soo fun. April wine I posted earlier is case in point.

    One of my favorite all time songs and songs to play to as well. It's not identical as a horses cadence but you hear it. And Many riffs and many short solo ad ins can be made with this horse Gallup type cadence. A massive variety of sounds can come from literally one note. Music and sound is crazy cool. Thank god for hearing.

    When Dad was in the Navy in the 70s he was gone a lot on cruises. We didn't have much then. I remember we had an auto 8 track player. I hooked it up to my ho set transformer, used an old speaker inside my $10 Spanish guitar and played CCR all night! I was 14, it was me, Mom and her brother passing around a gallon jug of cheap red wine having a homemade good time.

    CCR is so long lived and still so popular that somewhere, at any night in any bar in America either a jukebox or a cover band is playing a CCR tune. The good stuff last...







    and my personal favorite

    CCR was and still is one of my favorite rock bands--they had a lot of country influence too ("Looking Out My Back Door" is actually a Buck Owens song!)...I wore out many 8 tracks of their albums back in my teens when I had my '63 Beetle,'63 VW Bus,and '56 Chevy pickup..

    Bob Seeger,Jethro Tull,Areosmith,Boston,Deep Purple,Black Sabbath,Alice Cooper,Bad Company,and Emerson,Lake & Palmer,The Moody Blues,ELO,and Led Zeppelin were the bands I played the most back in the '70's...

    The Doobie Brothers "Taking It To The Streets album was another 8 track I wore out during my high school years..this somg,"For Someone Special",was great to listen too when you had a good buzz on..part rock,part jazz,part blues,it just had that laid back groove that was relaxing..
