"Down on the Corner" by Creedence Clearwater Revival
TAB by Aaron Prescott

Good song. I love CCR, they have a lot of good material. I kind of scrunched the rhythm
on the Guitar 3 part to save room, so I'll give you a breakdown of the rhythm. Once you
get the rhythm once, it's the same throughout the song.

D.S. means go back to the '%' sign (right before the verses)

Real easy song.  Good luck and have fun!

^You might want to check that again. Yes, I know it's left-handed tab and it's upside-down, but it definitely doesn't sound right. There's a C and an F# in there, which makes a tri-tone. CCR mostly stuck to pentatonic/major scale stuff.
