Must've been a pretty long grapevine Lowlander2
This is an excellent song for guitar, and is probably the best in the CCR pack. The beginning is pretty boring, with simple strutting chords and the like. The song does not really pick up for guitars until the third solo, which is a riot. It starts like the first two, with easy three button combo HOPOs, but then picks up with faster and more complicated licks.

This song actually reminded me of Green Grass and High Tides on several occasions. The last solo of both songs are about as long as each other, and there are parts in the middle which will mess you up (In this song, it is a rapid HOPO from a three button chord, which repeats). I didn't exactly count the number of notes, but there are at least 1200 in the final solo, which indeed rivals that of GGaHT.

If you are only going to get one song from Creedence and you play guitar, pick up this song.

Very fun Guitar Solo RBAddict666
Having played the Marvin Gaye version of IHITTG on Band Hero I was not expecting much from CCR's version of this song. However, after searching on Youtube and listening to the song I was surprised to find out that it was actually 11 minutes long and has a really long Guitar solo.

I picked this song up just a few days after it came out on the RB store and I was very surprised at how fun this song really is. It starts off with some simple chord sections before coming to the first of 3 solos. After the first solo there's a few more chords to play before coming to the second shorter solo. Then the Chorus is played one more time. After that comes the third and probably most fun Guitar Solo I've ever played in RB2. The notes are varied with lots of hammer ons, pull-offs and hammer-on chords and the solo lasts a whopping FIVE MINUTES! With a potential bonus of over 117,000 points up for grabs for a perfect solo you will definitely want to try and hit as many notes as possible for a big score. The difference between getting a perfect solo or missing one note is HUGE!

Overall, I had a lot of fun playing this song. If you decide to get a Creedence Clearwater Revival song then DEFINITELY buy this one!

Weak to Solid 3 murakaz
While the song overall is fantastic to listen to and fun to sing for the first few minutes or so, I can't say I feel as enthralled with the song at the end of singing it in Rock Band.

What is there to sing is awesome, you get about 3 minutes of this awesomeness before the first cowbell section, which lasts for about a minute and a half.

You're then treated to another round of the chorus, but then given the song's (now infamous) final cowbell section. Does playing five whole minutes and 620 notes of cowbell sound fun? How about all of that without any sort of variation at all?

While I wouldn't say a vocalist should completely avoid the song, as it's great on everything else and the ridiculous cowbell sections are the only thing that brings it down... but I can't recommend it either.
