Have You Ever Seen The Rain Guitar Tutorial

Welcome to my Have You Ever Seen The Rain Guitar Tutorial by CCR. This song uses some easy, basic chord shapes and a simple strumming pattern. What makes it interesting is all the melodic bassline parts which are clearly displayed in the chord chart/TAB at the top of the screen to make learning guitar easy!

Have You Ever Seen The Rain Strumming Pattern:

As far as the tutorial is concerned, this one is pretty simple for how cool it sounds once you get it all together. The verse is just 2 chords (C, G) and uses a simple, percussive strumming pattern. We teach you how to put that together, and then we tackle the chorus, which requires a couple more chords (Am, F, and some “slash” chords).

My favourite part of the tune, the bit that always gets me, is the descending bassline during the chorus when he sings “have you ever seen the rain.” We spend some time looking at that and figuring out how to get nice, smooth chord changes.

Finally, we take a look at the intro, learn how to play the iconic bassline bit (that you can see me playing at the very beginning of this video) and that’s about it.

I hope you enjoy the lesson and if you need any extra help don’t hesitate to leave any questions in the comments section!
