    I heard this acoustic arrangement of this CCR song in an episode of the TV series Sons Of Anarchy.
    It took quite a bit of work to transcribe it. The fingerstyle accompaniment is just 3 chords G, F and C, but they are played in many different ways. So I recorded it in 2 tracks, because I liked this more than arranging it into a solo fingerstyle piece.

    Reminds me of Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones

    Well, I just checked and Sympathy For The Devil came out one year before Fortunate Son. So CCR might have been inspired by The Stones indeed...

    That wouldn't work :eek: . I'm afraid I have to stick to instrumentals or find someone to sing along.
