Learn How To Play Creedence Clearwater Revival: I Put A Spell On You Guitar Chords

i put a spell on you guitar chords creedence clearwater revivalTo easily play along with I Put A Spell On You by Creedence Clearwater Revival, all you need is a nice acoustic guitar. The studio recording itself sounds as if it was played on clean electric guitars, and there are at least two tracks, but this is the perfect jam along song. It’s also based largely in E minor, the easiest key to play on the guitar since you can rely heavily upon the open strings.

The intro and first verse start off simply enough with the basic E minor chord. The 2nd frets are fingered on the A and D strings, whereas everything other string is played open. The next chord is A minor, which is played with an open A and high E, with the 2nd frets on D and G, and the 1st fret on B. You can continue this basic back and forth until the “I ain’t lying” line, where you will switch to B7. This is a little trickier, but the basic layout looks a bit like this:

e: 4th fret
B: Open
G: 3rd fret
D; 1st fret
A: 2nd fret

You then return to the E minor and A minor pattern and stay there until going into a basic C chord during the “I ain’t gonna take none of your puttin’ me down” line. If you’re unfamiliar, your fingers need to be in this position:

e: Open
B: 1st fret
G: Open
D: 2nd fret
A: 3rd fret

The end of the verse is wrapped up with E minor, B7, E minor, and A minor before going into the solo. It’s quite extensive and largely improvised. It uses techniques such as hammer ons and pull offs, extensive string bending, and some aggressive tremolo picking near the end. This sort of soloing is more about feeling and playing as emotively as you can than being note perfect, so you don’t have to be a technical wizard to pull it off or play something comparable.

There’s an interlude in the song that also throws an F chord, one of the more difficult of the most commonly used chords given its nature as a barre chord. F of course looks like this:

e: 1st fret
B: 1st fret
G: 2nd fret
D: 4th fret
A: 3rd fret
E; 1st fret

When it comes to switching between tricky chords, just keep strumming and let your fret hand catch up when it can. This will keep such a noticeable pause from occurring, and you’ll naturally sound a whole lot better in the process.
