WOW Great Tune!!!
I have this on a CD compilation called 'Chronicle' and it is 11:06 long. Written by Norman J. Whitfield and Barret Strong.
I also have a CCR songbook by Hal Leonard with the notation and tab.
Three guitar tracks in the song. Guitars 1 & 3 are tuned down 1 step (D-G-C-F-A-d). Guitar 2 is tuned to standard pitch (E-A-D-G-B-e). Key signature is 1 sharp (G major) - note this is respective to the detuned guitars.
The lead solo is played on guitar 3 so the 12th fret position 'looks' like E minor pentatonic but 'sounds' like D minor pentatonic.
At standard pitch, D minor pentatonic should be fine. It just sounds a bit off against the recording when you're figuring out the lead licks. You'll be hanging at the 10th fret for pretty much all of it. It's really good 'nuts and bolts' stuff.
Also: 'Fortunate Son' is detuned 1 step too.
Cheers and HTH,
