John Fogarty was good at creating signature riffs that were immediately recognizable with only a very few notes. You will remember these 25 instantly.

Hi Donnie my good friend!

I agree with most of these, but some, well let's say he borrowed from others.

Dear friend,

Don Junior's guitarist, Paul Petrillo, aced Fogarty's guitar on all of Don's CCR parodies for Seattle DJ, Bob Rivers. Junior has done Fogarty's voice on all of Bob's "Twisted Tunes" albums, about 25 to date. I wanted to link you to samples but the site no longer exists. Bob retired but teaches BIAB at his Broadcasting Course at Green River College in Auburn, Washington.

This is awesome! Growing up, CCR was always playing in the house. They're one of my dad's favourites, which he thankfully past onto me.

I think I'm going to have to give them a good listen later on - I'm overdue! Thanks for sharing smile

I used to listen to Twisted Tunes all the time and I loved those parodies. I heard Don Jr. singing Folgerty before I knew it was your son!

My point was some of those signature riffs were not originals. I didn't mean to rain on your parade.

Peace

Re: John Fogarty, yes, he came up with many great riffs back in the day! Not easy to do, and a good riff can turn an average song into a great song.
