Have You Ever Seen the Rain by CCR

FIrst time posting here! I started guitar in 2008 and practiced for 2 years. THen didn’t pick it back up until 3 months ago and REALLY loving it. Really love this CCR song. Have You Ever Seen the Rain - Accoustic - YouTube


Really nice playing Brian. Seems like you didn’t lose much of your technique in all those years away from playing!

Thank you for the kind words!

Hi Brian, great stuff. I can really hear, that you love playing this song. And as your example shows, with playing guitar, it seems to be like riding a bike - you can‘t unlearn it :grinning:. Very nice strumming :clap:.

That was great Brian. Loving the percussive hits. Sounds like you’ve not lost your groove after the long break.

Good stuff in learning over them 2 years and you still have it. A little rust perhaps on some of your runs and timing with them tossed in there. Nothing a bit more practice won’t straighten out! Overall I enjoyed your play and stick with it! You only have 1000 or so lessons to go through! :slight_smile:

All the best,

Thank you!

Thanks! Yes some rust for sure and I noticed that on the runs too. One day at a time!

Welcome to the Community, Brian, that is the way to make an entrance! You’ve got the vibe and groove of this classic down, sounded great.

I noticed the comment about the video orientation in the YT description. Assuming you made the video with a phone you need to look through the camera settings, either general or for video, and you’ll probably find a flip or mirror option, which you can then toggle to sort that out.

Look forward to your next!

Great job!

Sounds really great for 3 months of recent experience. It is ironic that a friend asked me if I could play this song the other day and I played it a little bit for him on a whim. Fun song!
