In this course I will show you how to play the lead guitar and rhythm guitar parts to nine Elvis Presley songs that he recorded for Sun and RCA between 1954 and 1956. We'll dive deep into the music of this rock'n'roll legend and cover the style of Elvis first guitar player Scotty Moore in depth.
The course features the following songs
That's Alright Mama
I Forgot To Remember
Trying To Get To You
My Baby Left Me
Blue Suede Shoes
I'll teach you how to play the solo guitar parts like intros, solos and outros, but I'll also show you how to play the rhythm guitar parts too.
I've included the tabs in Guitar Pro and PDF format, lyrics and chords for every song. Furthermore I've recorded highly authentic jam tracks in four different tempos to make this learning experience even more exciting.
There are some easy parts in this course, but most of the lectures are geared toward the intermediate to advanced guitar player.
Who this course is for:
- Intermediate guitarists who would like to learn the amazing Scotty Moore style
- Elvis fans who would like to learn who would like to learn the rhythm guitar parts to 9 of his songs from the 1950s
My name is Randy Richter, I was born in 1974 in Rostock, Germany. At age 16 I started to teach myself how to play the guitar. Shortly after I played shows around my hometown and in 1996 I became a full time professional musician. With my band Randy Rich and The Poor Boys we've toured all over Europe and the US and appeared on the biggest festivals in the scene. Due to our excellent skills and our love to the authentic sound of the 1950s I had the chance to play and record with many of the original rockabilly legends like Janis Martin, Glenn Honeycutt, Eddie Bond and Glen Glenn.
In 2005 I started to teach guitar to some local students. Because of the fun I was having doing that I extended this part of my job even further and now I'm also teaching people online via Skype. With my Rockabilly Guitar Video Lessons I have the chance to share my knowledge and my passion for the music of the 1950s to thankful students everywhere in the world.
