          Slowly But Surely – Elvis Presley
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Elvis Presley
Slowly But Surely (1963)
(Ben Weisman, Sid Wayne)

From: "Fun in Acapulco"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The second part of the verse is not easy to play with just one guitar.
The bass changes between C and G (basically a C chord), but the guitar 
plays a riff that makes it more than just a C.

      C9sus4/G
  C           C
  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +  
e|----------------|
B|----5---3---5---|
G|----5---3---5---|
D|----5---3---5---|
A|3---------------|
E|--------3-------|

There are surely different ways of interpreting and playing this part.
Suggestions are highly welcome!
