'Bad Moon Rising' is an upbeat and feel good tune. The rhythm combines aspects of the vocal melody, while keeping true to what the guitar player plays on the record. This is a great tune to work on for strumming practice.
This arrangement is a great introduction to playing chord melodies. There are two melodies in the song. The first is the most recognizable, but the second is beautiful too.

'Don't Stop Believin' is a staple of classic rock radio. Our arrangement condenses the song slightly, while staying true to all the melodies and guitar riffs that made it a classic!
