There are a few reasons why this is the first post here, most prominent among them are probably, well after all it is CC Rider and for the most part is simply GD blues.

Well I happen to like both this and LRR, at least when they play them well, so here's how I play the standard CC Rider chord progression/"lick";

In case anyone actually cares.

You can plop in the open A string as you see fit.

There. I did it. Let the tomato throwing begin.

Hahaha....I'm actually glad you did tab it out, BillBill. Although CC Rider isn't one of my favorite tunes, when they play it well, as you said, it is a good song to hear. Although I've never attempted to play it before, I think I will now that you've put the work into it, and who knows, I may end up enjoying it.

I liked the part about the tomato throwing. Nice. :o

Definatly one of my least faves....and I just started my tomato plants. They might be ready for the encore not guaranteed. (Gare-un-teed)
