Subject: Elvis Presley: That's Alright, Mama

Elvis heard bluesman Arthur Crudup play this as a medium shuffle; The King,
himself played it in a rockabilly style with a bass pattern alternating
between the root and the fifth. Both are great.

Sounds good. It's mostly about what you can do with your voice, this song. Not really the song for me...

This sounds good.

I think that you should play the A7 like

EADGBe
575685

I think it sounds better...

and the D and E, do I play like

D E
EADGBe EADGBe
x5453x and x7675x

Well... this is just what I think, but I think it's sounds cooler...

Sorry for the previous comment looking strange...

The D and E I play is actually D7 and E7, with open C7 shape...

EADGBe
x5453x is the D, or D7...

x7675x is the E, or E7...
